Bug Description

When booting, GRUB prints "Trying to terminate EFI services again" and blocks the boot process more than 20 seconds.

With Ubuntu Desktop, I have never seen this message. I guess that GRUB have different configurations.

Adding "insmod efi_gop" and "insmod efi_uga" in grub.cfg (in EFI partition) solves the issue. In fact, any one of the commands helps.

To verify the fix won't affect other devices, I tested the fix on a headless device which does not have video ports. the headless device boots correctly and did not show any warnings or errors.
