Default Re: How to force to 720p ?

No, durring boot is used console driver driver and it's resolution. Usually it's 640x480 ( or 800x600 with really big font ).
You must check if your FrameBuffer module is blacklisted ( in Ubuntu it's usually vesafb, vga16fb, nvidiafb and many more - I'm using vesafb because it's compatibile with everything and don't block nvidia kernel module to load as nvidiafb do ) and if it is then remove it from blacklist ( add "#" at the biginning of it's line ), add it to initramfs autoloaded modules, update initramfs image and add kernel option with desired/available resolution to your bootloader configuration.
