    # grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
    to rebuild the Grub.

    Now, the display modes can be summarised as,
    1. Window-style console overlaying Grub menu, which is low-resolution with moderate text size, lasting about 2 seconds;
    2. Full-screen console with high-resolution and small text, lasting about 1 seconds;
    3. Full-screen console with low-resolution and big text (I think the font is ter-132n), lasting about 3 seconds;
    4. Full-screen console with high-resolution and moderate text size (this is the desired character size for my eyes), lasting about 3 seconds. This is almost the same display mode as that I want.
    Not sure if it applies to your problem, but you can check the supported video modes in grub2 with the command videoinfo (press C at the boot screen to enter grub2 console).
    I've had cases where the monitor native resolution was not supported and the boot messages where too small, or alternatively too big.
    Also note that using an unsupported mode in kernel settings makes no difference and does not give an error message AFAICS.

    Thanks! I tried this but there is no command `videoinfo` in my system. /:sad:/

    Alternatively,
    I'd expect a little research on your GPU should turn up that info.

    Where did you look? It's on mine, a grub2-x86_64-efi shell command (not in any bash path).

    I've done that before but I cannot recall the process. The result is that I could not determine the mode my GPU support from the Grub. The CPU is an integrated one with Intel i7-7600U.

    Yes, I think it's a grub2-x86_64-efi shell. I reboot and press C when the grub menu showing up. After the grub> prompt, I entered videoinfo and pressed enter. Error says there is no such command.

    When in the Grub2 shell at the prompt, pressing <Tab> shows the available commands.

    I have two rebootable machines at hand, both Grub2-EFI:
    1. Lenovo laptop, "Intel HD Graphics 5300", screen resolution: 3200x1800~60Hz, Leap-15.1
      “videoinfo” runs but produces no output.
    2. iMac retina, AMD Radeon R M385X, screen resolution 5120 x 2880, Tumbleweed-20200124
      “videoinfo” produces some output, but shows the only display resolution as “3840 x 2160 x 32".


    Perhaps you need to force reinstall the grub2 packages.

    Thank you. I tried, but it made no difference. There is no "videoinfo" command in the list of available commands. That's weird.

    I agree, weird.

    Doing some search for another Forum thread,
    I came across information likely related to this issue...

    The Following SDB "Installing nVidia the hard way" applies to nVidia but in the Configuration section references numerous generic configurations in GRUB both with and without Plymouth that affects how the boot displays no matter what graphics card you have.

    Interesting, thanks.
    Note that it refers to the grub shell command “vbeinfo”. I have just read that that only applies to non-EFI Grub. For EFI Grub it is “videoinfo”
    Perhaps cnzhx can tell us if his Grub has “vbeinfo”?
