My ubuntu boot screen shows up in a strange low resolution, almost text mode, instead the usual and sleek white "ubuntu" over dark background. It's not a big issue because when GDM loads everything becomes ok, but If there's an easy way to fix it I would like to give it a try.
There is a work around for the problems with proprietary drivers and Plymouth which has worked for me with Nvidia drivers.
You must be using the proprietary nvidia or fglrx driver. Install startupmanager and try to change the bootloader resolution to one that your monitor supports.
