I searched for how to change this and came up with nothing, so I'm guessing it's a fairly uncommon issue. I run a dual-monitor setup with a modern dell monitor and a recently-purchased thrift store monitor that I repainted to look cool (can't beat a $5 gold/black apple monitor! :p). However, now that I'm using the older (I think HP) monitor, Chimera shows up on that monitor instead of my other one.

The problem is that on the older monitor, Chimera uses the text interface (the black screen with grey text, like the Windows boot error screen) instead of my pretty white tonymacx86 graphical chimera interface. I'd like a way to choose the default output screen for which monitor the chimera boot screen displays on.


If it helps, I enabled 1080p display, instant menu, and the white theme in MultiBeast when setting it all up.

What screen Chimera displays to is tied to the video card you are using and cannot be changed.
