Thanks for that. I hadn't realized that Radeon was the same as Nvidia.

(and in fact there isn't a vmeinfo.mod file in /boot/grub)
error: secure Boot forbids loading module from (hd0,gpt2)/boot/grub/help.mod
So I had to try and guess the screen resolutions that would be acceptable. My maximum
didn't work and nor did my minimum
Your reference says "P.S.: If this didn't work for you, try this method." with a link to http://www.randomlinuxstuff.tk/2013/...-plymouth.html So I tried that.
in /etc/default/grub change
sudo apt-get install v86d
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="i8042.nomux=1 i8042.reset quiet splash nomodeset video=uvesafb:mode_option=800x600-32,mtrr=3,scroll=ywrap"
This worked. Thanks.
I might try higher resolutions, but it actually looks fine as it is.
I have just realised that I omitted steps 8 and 9 of this second method. However [shrug].
