Here's my kernel command line information:

From dmesg:

[ 0.000000] Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-3.0.0-12-server root=UUID=b63798ce-2a88-4598-8dad-a9c1cd679330 ro nomodeset

And /etc/default/grub minus the commented lines:

GRUB_DEFAULT=0
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
GRUB_TIMEOUT=2
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=""
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="nomodeset"

Even with nomodeset, screen stays black.

I'll see if I can test this out in KVM to see if it's different. Maybe the black screen is a virtualbox thing.
