      Description

      Hi Folks!

      I want to report a problem i have when booting into the newest (3.1.2020) scale image. i would love to dd the image to a stick, but then i cannot edit the grub.cfg in windows to get started with the image. so i have to go the ISO/MBR way (in my case with rufus)

      when booting without any changes to the grub.cfg i get a black screen. i dont even see the grub menu. why is that so? because on my server i do not have a video output. the default install is via putty to the console

      i made some changes to the grub.cfg that allows both - console and gfx installations. the grub_new works for me perfect and has been tested by me... please use it for the nightlies or maybe a beta tester can test the config on his system...

      Another Problem i want to report is that flashing the ISO/MBR method the symlink to vmlinuz and initrd doesnt work...i had to direct link:

      original:

          linux    /vmlinuz vga=788 --- quiet nomodeset boot=live toram=filesystem.squashfs console=ttyS0,9600 console=tty0
          initrd   /initrd.img

      new:

          echo    'Loading vmlinuz ...'
          linux    /boot/vmlinuz-5.9.0-1-amd64 gfxpayload=text quiet nomodeset boot=live toram=filesystem.squashfs console=ttyS0,115200 console=tty0
          echo    'Loading initial ramdisk ....'
          initrd   /boot/initrd.img-5.9.0-1-amd64

      i am not sure if this is a general (ISO/MBR) issue or Rufus issue.

      please do also mention the no video / console output in the grub installed on the system.

      this is my first report here ;-)
