I tried to set the same resolution i use for the Desktop for GRUB2 (1920x1080x32).

  1. Why is this resolution neither listet in the output of hwinfo --framebuffer nor in that of vbeinfo on GRUB 2 console (available through c from GRUB menu)?

  2. Why does vbeinfo show different resolutions than hwinfo --framebuffer even though both methods are recommended to find the available resolutions for GRUB 2?

  3. Why does vbeinfo say Preferred resolution: 1920x1080 even if this resolution is not contained in the output of vbeinfo?
