Yes, that's the splash image. It has some size and colour map

Regarding the physical layour of the menu, I have no idea.
Regarding the splash image, I use this:
The important part of that is the:
gm convert - -geometry 640x480 -colors 14 xpm:- | gzip -9
GraphicsMagick incantation. More normally:
gm convert source-image-file.png -geometry 640x480 -colors 14 xpm:-
| gzip -9 >new-grub-splash.xpm.gz

Sometimes the only solution is to find a new problem.
