 From my research, passing vga=ask will give you the codes for modes 
supported by the video adapter on the system. Those would be accelerated.

May I ask you to share the code you used? I would love to see if it 
results in the same behavior on my end :)

I will also give you a code for 1024x768 straight from the vga=ask + 
converted to pass as a vga= parameter to the kernel so you can test and 
see if it, pun may be intended, accelerates.

Kind regards,
