Ok, here is what I get after choosing the linux menu entry. Everything
before the menu shows up, is to quick to read.

Rom image present.
  [Linux-bzimage, setup=0x2c00, size=0x2784a0]
  Video mode: 1280x800-32
  Frame buffer base: 0x80010000
  Video line length: 8192

I hope this is the requested info. Do provide other stuff, I probably
need a detailed instruction.

BTW, I cannot switch to terminal from X after starting with Grub2.
