I had this happen on both GRUB and systemd-boot.
I use a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card.
I know this is a very minor issue but EndeavourOS is definitely able to show the boot text in a higher (my native 1440p?) resolution as seen when I boot from the ISO so something is changing after installing the system.
My installation is about 2 years old at this point but I try to keep up with the new defaults (e.g. switching to systemd-boot / dracut etc.)
Can someone please help me with this? Thank you.
EDIT: I think the low resolution problem is already starting one step before on the systemd-boot menu where I can select entries.
A few days ago I installed EndeavourOS on a different SSD with the latest ISO as a test but still the same issue:
Boot text has a high resolution and looks crisp when booting into the ISO
has a low resolution and looks blurry after I boot into my installed system.
EDIT: But maybe want I want is just not possible on NVIDIA?
Note: The proprietary NVIDIA driver (since 364.12) also implements kernel mode-setting, but it does not use the built-in kernel implementation and it lacks an fbdev driver for the high-resolution console.
But then I still don’t know why it works while booting the EndeavourOS ISO… Does it perhaps use the Nouveau drivers?
I installed EndeavourOS again on different SSD, this time without using the closed source NVIDIA drivers and well the boot log text resolution jumps while booting to the high resolution one I can see when booting from the ISO and when I shutdown the shutdown log text is also in a high resolution.
So I guess this is just something that does not work with the closed source NVIDIA drivers?
Nouveau has better performance in console, nvidia is better outside of console.
Do have a look in the BIOS for some setting that could help. In linked article (from Archwiki), someone said they altered some setting of the vendor’s logo and this triggered a better resolution at console.
Or, just forget it. It is a cosmetic issue, with no impact to the real reason one uses a PC/Laptop. (unless you belong to an edge case… )
Nobara is using Grub as the bootloader. Did you review the link petsam posted?
The NVIDIA driver does not provide an fbdev driver for the high-resolution console for the kernel compiled-in vesafb module. However, the kernel compiled-in efifb module supports a high-resolution console on EFI systems. This method requires GRUB or rEFInd and is described in NVIDIA/Tips and tricks#Fixing terminal resolution..
Grub or rEFInd is required to get a high-resolution console with your GPU.
