I agree the text to background contrast is too low, and I have a hard
time seeing the grub countdown.

I have found the contrast to be too low on both the screens I saw it on:
my Thinkpad x61s (laptop, 1024x768), and my desktop (it's a 24 inch
iiyama LCD screen, and I'm not quite certain what is the resolution in
early boot. It's certainly not the native 1920x1080 though).

Thanks for looking into this issue!
