I hope to understand the problem, I guess you can't see
the login prompt immediately after startup is complete.
If this is the case it might help:
- to disable framebuffer, e.g. using a boot option like
  vga=normal or try to configure with another resolution
- as a workaround often it is possible to switch to a second console
  e.g. <ALT>+<F2> , because this effect is often only related
  to the first console
- if none of the above helps, you may try to run a start-up-script,
  shortly before the login prompt appears,
  which contains the `clear', `resize' or `reset' command
