You have vesafb enabled, either disable it or don't pay attention to these messages.

Code:

[    0.744082] vesafb: mode is 640x480x32, linelength=2560, pages=0
[    0.744083] vesafb: scrolling: redraw
[    0.744085] vesafb: Truecolor: size=8:8:8:8, shift=24:16:8:0
[    0.744137] vesafb: framebuffer at 0xef000000, mapped to 0xf7e80000, using 1216k, total 1216k
[    0.744187] Console: switching to colour frame buffer device 80x30
[    0.784429] fb0: VESA VGA frame buffer device

It's not clear why it gets enabled, but probably you'll need to remove "rhgb", or pass "vga=normal nomodeset" to your kernel.

This error occur since grub2 enable graphical boot.
This can be disabled at the kernel side by using a the kernel boot line :
Code:

video=vesa:off vga=normal
But then I was searching the root cause and I think I've managed to get rid of the problem at the grub2 level using:
GRUB_VIDEO_BACKEND=true as a grub env. This can probably be made available from a file in /etc/grub.d.

This will disable graphical boot from grub2. So I don't know which solution is the best.
