My guess is that you simply didn't have the same mode configured in
grub legacy as you do in grub2. If you don't think that's the case
then please give us some data to work with to determine what the
difference actually is.

Assuming that you're currently using grub2, and that you want a
console and grub menu resolution of 1024x768 please do the following,
in the order given:

1: Ensure that GRUB_GFXMODE in /etc/default/grub is set to "1024x768",
that GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD is either not set, set to "keep" or also set to

2: Run "grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg" to ensure that these
settings have been applied to the grub.cfg in use.

3: Save the full contents of both /etc/default/grub and
/boot/grub/grub.cfg so that you can include them in your reply email.

4: Save the output of "grub-install --version".

5: Reboot and confirm that your console resolution is not 1024x768.

6: Install grub legacy.

7: Configure grub legacy to hand off a mode of 1024x768.

8: Save the full contents of your /boot/grub/menu.lst .

9: Save the output of "grub-install --version" again.

10: Reboot and confirm that your console resolution *is* 1024x768.

Then reply with the two saved outputs of "grub-install --version" and
the full contents of /etc/default/grub, /boot/grub/grub.cfg, and
/boot/grub/menu.lst .

Please do not reply with any other unrelated discussion for now, I
would like to stick to one thing at a time to prevent this thread from
getting more chaotic.
