I think this can be done using the GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX variable in GRUB's configuration (/etc/default/grub). So edit that file using:

Code: Select all

sudo nano /etc/default/grub
Add a line containing:

Code: Select all

GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=1920x1080
to the file, save and close. Then run:

Code: Select all

sudo update-grub
But then not perfect, as get white text kernel output error message. Is there some boot text I can trawl to get exact error?
