Having the same problem on a fresh install of 10.04.2.
New MOBO: MSI 880GM-43E
Video Chip: ATI Radeon HD4250
Video Driver: stock ubuntu

Work around does not work:
    echo "FRAMEBUFFER=yes" | sudo tee /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash

    sudo update-initramfs -u

very annoying as I have 3 other machines upgraded from 9.10 that show the splash just fine.
