    You may have the same problem as me in that your desktop resolution isn't available on boot.
    Probably getting 1600x1200 or 1280x1024

    This works for me but adds around 6s to my boot time. Not sure if it's really worth it.

    Re: Plymouth low res boot screen.

    The following fixed my low res boot issue with Lucid 10.04 running on a laptop with nvidia graphics card

    edit the grub by typing this in a terminal:
    sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

    add the lines:
    GRUB_GFXMODE=1280x800
    GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=1280x800
    GRUB_VIDEO_BACKEND=vbe

    (change the resolution to match your screen)

    then:
    sudo update-grub

    reboot and bob might be your uncle

    This doesn't work. It fixes the grub boot menu resolution, but the splash screen is still in crappy 640x480 or some similarly ugly resolution.

    EDIT:
    It works at 1600x1200. Apparently only some resolutions are supported, while everything else falls back to the ugly one.
    To find out what resolutions are supported type
    Code:
    hwinfo --framebuffer
    However even with this "working" resolution the graphic now appears to be corrupted.

    Re: Plymouth low res boot screen.

    Fresh install of Lucid had proper boot splash, but after installing nvidia drivers, it becomes low resolution.

    I tried the steps listed in this link and it worked for me!

    Re: Plymouth low res boot screen.

    so, do any of these methods work with ATI? It seems that most of them are made for people with nvidia drivers

    Yes the Tux's solution posted above works for ATI as well as Nvidia
    Just make sure you use a resolution supported by your monitor.
    If in doubt use 1024X768 . It gives a nice splash screen.

    Re: Plymouth low res boot screen.

    Hi,

    My problem might have similarities with the problems discussed here; I've trying to get this fixed for a while but don't know what else to try.

    I have Ubuntu 8.04, 8.10 and Windows 7 running natively on a Dell D820 laptop with 945GM chipset. I also have Ubuntu 8.04 running as guest in Virtualbox on the Windows 7 host using raw partitions (ie. the same as when I would run Ubuntu 8.04 natively). This is all working well.

    Now I'm trying to do the same thing with the latest Ubuntu 10.04. It works just fine when running natively but hangs during the boot process (I see grub, can select the kernel, see some disc activity then silence) when running as guest in Virtualbox (on Windows 7).

    I've added a few more grub entries so I can pass different parameters to the kernel depending on whether I run Ubuntu 10.04 natively or as a guest in Virtualbox on the Windows 7 host.

    I haven't been able to get past the point where the cursor either stops blinking in the left top of the screen or disappears altogether, then sits there (forever presumably; haven't tried to wait forever ).

    Below my grub entries and an extract from the Virtualbox logs (for both 8.04 which works and 10.04 which doesn't). As you can see Virtualbox gets stuck in attempting to resize the Display?

    The 2nd additonal grub entry lists the kernel and initrd from a guest Ubuntu 10.04 installation I did within VirtualBox using a fresh virutal disc (ie not the existing raw partitions. This install works just fine (of course), but its kernel and initrd can't get Ubuntu 10.04 booted from the raw partitions.

    Any ideas out there how I could continue to debug this?

    Additional grub entries:

    menuentry 'Windows7: Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.32-21-generic' --class ubuntu --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os {
    recordfail
    insmod ext2
    set root='(hd0,6)'
    search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set <hidden>

    linux /vmlinuz-2.6.32-21-generic root=/dev/sda8 ro quiet video=uvesafb:mode_option=1600x1200,mtrr=3,scroll= ywrap
    initrd /initrd.img-2.6.32-21-generic
    }

    menuentry 'Windows7: Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.32-21-generic' --class ubuntu --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os {
