I have a number of systems like this. Even setting POST type to normal/long
isn't necessarily long enough for video to initialize prior to a Grub menu

The concept of least surprise here points to longest possible Grub menu
delay. Those in a hurry can hit enter to speed the process at any time
without risk of surprise. When others need to do something other than hit
enter, they need more time to decide what and when.
