After which, you can make this mode your default by adding the following to  the appropriate "Display" subsection in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
> Modes "1920x1080"

thanks for all help. now server runs with i915kms, but still required 
Modes "1920x1080" to turn it. By default it still used 1024x768 no idea 
why autodetect doesn't work.

but works fine manually. thank you
