Hi Pete and Vesa,

Thank you both for your help! Pete, some of the other developers and I were thinking there was something wrong with vmware, like you said. Someone is going to try out installing SuSE (where the gfxboot menu originated) and see if its menu works, just to make sure something didn't happen when the Debian GRUB was patched.

Vesa, if it is something wrong with the code, where would we begin to check. I'm not an expert at GRUB, so I am not really sure where and how to fix it if it is a coding issue.

IIRC, VMware is missing some VGA BIOS functions, or get it wrong as in your case. You can try to complain to them. A bug, I reported 4 years
ago, was fixed lately (getting serial mode 7e2 wrong)...

Good luck,

Are you sure it is bug in VMware ?... In old DOS days when we were using VESA BIOS calls to access highres video modes, most of implementations I looked did use WRONG rendering technique. So in different cards output was still wrong. So basicly they don't remember to figure out real dimensions of virtual screen buffer and therefor effect from that screenshot is quite common in different video cards. So I am goingin to bet this problem can be fixed by correcting code.
