I have resolved that problem.
There are two ways of resolving it: a) disabling kms; b) setting up
"video=" (instead "vda=" which don't work with kms) in menu.lst or grub.cfg.
In my system for the first way it needs to improve
'/etc/modprobe.d/i915-kms.conf' by changing 'options i915 modeset' from
'1' to '0'.
For the second way I set up
"GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="video=LVDS-1:640x480"" in my
/etc/default/grub and make `update-grub` (in your case it may be another
value and if you use grub1 you need to improve /boot/grub/menu.lst).
