a small correction, phcoder pointed out to me in
#coreboot at irc.freenode.net that `update-grub` only updates
`/boot/grub/grub.cfg` and does not install GRUB in the MBR.

To clarify, does not work means, that only a resolution of 640×480 is
chosen and not 1024×768.
phcoder also said, that it is probably a Video BIOS issue as GRUB does
not do anything special. GRUB’s command `vbeinfo` also lists the

For testing, I flashed the vendor BIOS to the device and there
`GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768` does not have any effects at all and without and
with the port replicator/ultrabase/docking station only a resolution of
640×480 is used.
Ideas to get that to work with the Video BIOS? It’s needed to get the
