Default Install Terminal Resolution

I am trying 4.7current i386 and have some difficulty with the default 80x25 resolution - the installation prompts are off the bottom of the screen.

Is there something similiar to passing 'vga=771' in linux at the OpenBSD install boot prompt?

That should be a very standard video mode. I would try adjusting the size and location of the image by using the monitor's buttons.

AFAIK, OpenBSD preserves the text video mode configured by the BIOS.. it's typically a standard VGA mode, so as IdOp said, this is a monitor misconfiguration
