The boot logo

Varies with each model. As the full model number is not here, it's best you ask Asus what's up with that.

booting from Grub?
by James Denison / April 15, 2016 12:39 PM PDT

the boot screen sets it's own minimal resolution in the grub.cfg file. You can make permanent changes in /etc/default/grub file, so when you do grub updates, you won't get a reset back to the default currently there when it rewrites the grub.cfg file in the /boot folder. The line you'd change in that file looks like this, but you would uncomment it if you want it to become active during grup updates.

#GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480


Once the system is finished loading it changes to whatever resolution is set in it.
