Sorry for my poor English.
I had tried DragonFly BSD in virtulbox and burned the img file to a USB to try the liveCD on my laptop. I encountered a problem that in ttyv0 and single user mode console could not make use of the whole screen while if I switch to ttyv1, it is normal.
I booted the System from EFI mode and the logo size is normal. When changed to loading messages, the console scrolled in a size of 80x25. I could not change to another mode use "vidcontrol" for there was only one mode.
The picture shows the mode used in ttyv0 and ttyv1 from "vidcontrol" command.
Thanks for any message helpful.
