While not crucial, it is bothering me... see screenshot.
This is a fresh install on older hardware, display is VGA.
On every reboot of the host, the solid background color is a different one. I've had blue, green, yellow, red... you name it.
Why is it doing this ?
I've had this symptom on 2 separate fresh installs, that is 2 Intel SR1695 servers with 2 different monitors & 2 different vga cables.
