VGA= is not a kickstart setting it's an kernel command line parameter 
and with grub2 you need to use "set gfxpayload=$your-desired-resolution" 

You can find the available kickstart settings on the ( extremely well ) 
documented kickstart page [1] from the Anaconda team...

"vga=794" would be "set gfxmode=1280x1024x16||,1280x1024" and you will 
need to add something like the below to the grub2 config file

set gfxmode=$your-desired-resolution
set gfxpayload=keep
insmod gfxterm
insmod vbe
