You could try some of the options documented here:
Force the use of VBE mode x. The mode will only be set if it's
found in the VBE-provided list of supported modes.
NOTE: The mode number 'x' should be specified in VESA mode number
notation, not the Linux kernel one (eg. 257 instead of 769).
HINT: If you use this option because normal <mode> parameter does
not work for you and you use a X server, you'll probably want to
set the 'nocrtc' option to ensure that the video mode is properly
restored after console <-> X switches.
