Hello,

GRUB as found in the 0.13.0 installation image hangs after printing the
four letters =E2=80=9CGRUB=E2=80=9D in console mode on a pre-UEFI Dell Powe=
redge 2950
server (something that=E2=80=99s roughly ten years old.)

I built an image where GRUB=E2=80=99s graphical terminal output was disable=
d:

  (grub-configuration
    (device "/dev/sda")
    (terminal-outputs '(console)))

=E2=80=A6 but that didn=E2=80=99t help.

Conversely, Debian=E2=80=99s =E2=80=98grub-pc=E2=80=99 2.02~beta3-5 package=
 doesn=E2=80=99t have this
problem.   Debian=E2=80=99s =E2=80=98grub.cfg=E2=80=99 prologue is similar =
to ours so I suspect
the problem is in GRUB itself.  Debian has =E2=80=9Cquite a few=E2=80=9D pa=
tches for
GRUB though:
<https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-grub/grub.git/tree/debian/patches>.

Has anyone experienced this?

Thanks,
Ludo=E2=80=99.
