contents of /etc/grub2.cfg
Description of problem: After commenting out GRUB_THEME in /etc/default/grub to remove the fancy grub theme and running grub2-mkconfig in F17 installed from RC3, grub menu shows up in a 'blackish' no theme style, much different from the 'grayish' theme present by default in F17 RC4 installs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always (tried on a virtual system, as well as normal install)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. comment out GRUB_THEME in /etc/default/grub
2. run: sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
3. reboot system and check the grub menu
Expected results: grub2 menu with the 'grayish' theme similar to the one in installs from F17 RC4.

image of the grub2 menu that shows up
Please explain what 'blackish' and 'greyish' mean - attach comparable images that show the difference.
Anyway: Why is it a bug that it apparently looks different?

grub2 menu from RC4 install
It seems to be more like a video mode issue. Its been classified as a bug because the video mode changes between installs from a F17 RC3 and from a F17 RC4.
Fedora will now use graphical mode by default.
It is not a bug that the video mode has changed.
