Can you attach your syslog and record a video of what's going on? Also what is you graphics card?

A have similar problem with Acer W500, but second boot splash is corrupted. Maybe video memory is not cleared when switching from VESA to native video driver.

Replying to X512:

My ASUS F5SL laptop shows the same issue. It is using the radeon_hd driver. The graphics card identifies as "Radeon HD 3470 (RV620)". The desktop doesn't turn blue before the distorted screen.

Maybe this is due to a different screen resolution in VESA mode. I think there it uses 1024x768. The native resolution is 1280x800.

I apologize... I formatted my system and the problem went away.
