This means vga=0x31a, aka 16-bit 1280x1024.  Does 24-bit (vga=0x31b) work?

I suspect there's some fuzzy matching here.

Thanks Robert for the suggestion. I had renewed hopes this might work, but it would not. After editing the menuentry to use either the vga=0x31b or vga=795, the machine booted to a blinking cursor. It would not go beyond that.

Does that help in determining where maybe the problem lies? Also, I thought both linux16 and vga were deprecated, no longer to be used?
