I'm glad that worked for you.

I would look in targets/intel/truxton/truxton/fallback/ldoptions

Check the values of CONFIG_VGA, CONFIG_CONSOLE_VGA...

cat targets/intel/truxton/truxton/fallback/ldoptions | grep VGA
cat targets/intel/truxton/truxton/fallback/ldoptions | grep ROM

make sure that you have it configured as you expect.

If that doesn't help, send the log file and ldoptions to the list.
