Hi Vesa,

Thank you for offering to take a look at the source code! The link to the code is:


The person who made the patch created a source and a binary directory. In the .deb files under the binary dir, there are source files which I use to create the "message" which is used to create the menu. You might want to look into that as well as the source code under the source directory.

Thanks again,

Official GRUB distribution doesn't contain code to display graphical menus, so this is stricly unoffical patch you are using with it. If you can point me to comple source archive I could have some time to look at it and verify some details about it.

Basicly most common problem was that coders were too lazy to read (or didn't just read) VBE standard and missed some details about virtual screen buffer scanline length value in returned video mode settings. There are also other video settings to look for compatibility, but this was usually main issue at codes I were looking at that time.

I think my workmate has RH9 running under VMware and it also features graphical boot. But I think that is prepatched RedHat version of GRUB.
