Also add the keywords ''splash'' and ''logo.nologo'' in the APPEND line. If not already done, set the vga parameter to one of the VESA (non-text) modes. The VGA being set to a VESA mode is especially needed for systems which do not have Kernel Mode Setting (KMS) drivers available and are still using legacy Framebuffer (fb) drivers instead, with vga=0x318 (which translates to 1024x768x32bit) being a commonly used parameter for systems without KMS drivers. (To find out if KMS is loaded, check your Xorg log for 'modesetting' and to find out the VESA modes available in your system use 'vga=askme' in your boot configuration.)
