Not so odd. This is the way we set up servers. '-h' for headless.
Now - the question is *why* IF/AS/WHEN you have no such setting.
My guess is BIOS reporting one thing, probe another w/r finding a VGA it is
allowed to use for console.
What the probe 'discovers' doen't go active until it has finished - but the
first two loader stages simply 'assume' console will be dealt with somehow, so
their output does show up - boot device choice, spinner and such are still BIOS
