I'm not sure what you mean. It should take you to a screenshot of
the problem.  What does "too many hoops" mean in this context?

I did exactly that, though I did not try the GENERIC kernel.   My conf
looks like this:

include GENERIC

ident           MACHINENAME

options         IPFIREWALL
options         IPDIVERT

options         VESA

# System console options

options         SC_DISABLE_REBOOT       # disable reboot key sequence
options         SC_HISTORY_SIZE=200     # number of history buffer lines
options         SC_PIXEL_MODE           # add support for the raster text mode

# The following options will change the default colors of syscons.

options         SC_NORM_ATTR="(FG_GREEN|BG_BLACK)"
