Default Distorted screen image after boot - 05-31-2013, 04:47 PM

Hello Guys!

I'm trying to install the last ChromeOS build released by Dell (ChromiumOS_Apr10_2013.img) on my Dell mini 1010 and I'm having some troubles with the screen resolution.

I'm booting the system through an USB stick and I'm using the boot options "chromeos-usb.A root=/dev/sda3" as suggested by other members of this forum.

Everything seems normal and I can even see the Chromium splash screen perfectly.

After that, the login screen is shown completely distorted or warped. I can see the mouse is moving by the screen but I'm unable to login so I can reach the terminal (using ctrl+alt+T) and then change the screen resolution.

Could you please help me out on telling me another way to reach the terminal or on a way to get this screen resolution solved? If I put the text "vga=ask" on the boot options, I just can get very low resolutions such as 80x60 or 80x25 even scanning for new modes... None of them change anything and I can see the system changes the screen resolution on boot despite of my choice.

Well, I'm very excited about this new image and I'm reading good stuff about it. So i count on you guys for helping me with this little trouble.

Thanks in advance!
