I can't say for sure as my Linux box is currently down due to a failing
I have an RMA replacement on its way, and hope to transfer the contents
to the new drive before returning the old. I don't want to risk it
going toes-up before I dd the old drive.
Anyway, are you sure the resolution is 1280x1024? The reason I ask is,
when I installed that system using Kubuntu, the LCD (DVI input)
reported 1280x1024, though the display looked like 1024x768.
It turned out the video card was running 1024x768 and trying to
up-convert it to the card.
