Hello,
GRUB as found in the 0.13.0 installation image hangs after printing thefour letters “GRUB” in console mode on a pre-UEFI Dell Poweredge 2950server (something that’s roughly ten years old.)
I built an image where GRUB’s graphical terminal output was disabled:
(grub-configuration (device "/dev/sda") (terminal-outputs '(console)))
… but that didn’t help.
Conversely, Debian’s ‘grub-pc’ 2.02~beta3-5 package doesn’t have thisproblem. Debian’s ‘grub.cfg’ prologue is similar to ours so I suspectthe problem is in GRUB itself. Debian has “quite a few” patches forGRUB though:https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-grub/grub.git/tree/debian/patches.
Has anyone experienced this?
Thanks,Ludo’.
