Increase resolution of Linux install in hypervisor console

This works mainly in VMware and virt-manager (qemu) consoles for when you start a CentOS install and the GUI has a terrible resolution.

Append the following to boot parameters. For CentOS/RHEL that would mean pressing tab on the boot options that say Install CentOS 7.

vga=791

Press enter to boot.
