    Graphic Booting Options

    Probably a quick one, I want to see grub then text then login screen rather than any splash screens between grub and login (doesn't display properly since I'm using ATI drivers)... is there a way to see the loading text, ideally like ubuntu live in a higher res with colour?

    Cheers!!!

    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/default/grub
    Change this:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
    To this:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet"
    For Verbose:
    #GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
    Save changes
    Code:
    sudo update-grub

    That's great, knew it would be simple... any way to bump up the res from 640 to 1024 or 1280?

    That's a good reference website, it covers the resolution settings for GRUB but not how to get Ubuntu to display the text loading in a higher resolution - much like the Live CD does.
