It didn't go, just for the record. There was no "Startup Manager" to be found anywhere. Some one made a Grub 2 editor for KDE, and after all the trouble of switching to KDE it did nothing to fix my problem.
There was also some command line tools with "mkconfig" or something like that. After testing out a few resolutions and bit depths it dawned on me that this could take a while. There are at least a couple of dozen combinations of the two, and I didn't feel like stressing out my hard drive booting and rebooting just to look for the right one.
