Monochrome-Dark GRUB Theme
GRUB Themes
Description:

A GRUB 2 theme with a design in minimalism and simplicity.

Optimized for 3 different resolutions (GRUB will stretch it if you have a widescreen monitor). So pick the one that comes closest to the highest supported resolution for GRUB. This info can be found with vbeinfo at the GRUB command line, or by installing the hwinfo package and running hwinfo --framebuffer with root privileges. Their output may be different.

To install the theme, just run the install.sh script with root in a terminal, and you will be prompted by a series of questions. A graphical method is to use Early Bird which can be found...

(You will need mono to run it)

Enjoy :)

That won't happen. Grub uses VESA BIOS Extensions for its supported resolutions. Some cards support widescreen VESA, but when a theme is used, it never behaves correctly (I tried making a 1366x768 version and that's what happened).
