Just for laughs, add vesa_load="YES" to the 3rd box you just did a fresh
install on and see what happens.
What did you use for the install source? Was it the same source as what
was used to build the box with the original splash problem? Did you run
a checksum on that source?
I run a boot splash screen on my 10.2 system without any problems.
