Re: [Xen-users] Grub interactive menu missing from Xen PVHVM DomU's 'serial console' output. All the other output is there - just the menu is missing?

I launch with
xl create -c <cfg>
from a terminal I ssh'd into on the host. That;s where I see all the console

Yep. VNC works too. I want to get to a shell-only solution though.

Yep, they are in this case.
‘GRUB_TERMINAL’ If this option is set, it overrides both
‘GRUB_TERMINAL_INPUT’ and ‘GRUB_TERMINAL_OUTPUT’ to the same value.

I thought not,
Boot the default entry this many seconds after the menu is displayed,
unless a key is pressed. The default is ‘5’. Set to ‘0’ to boot immediately
without displaying the menu, or to ‘-1’ to wait indefinitely.
Wait this many seconds for a key to be pressed before displaying the menu.
If no key is pressed during that time, display the menu for the number of
seconds specified in GRUB_TIMEOUT before booting the default entry. We expect
that most people who use GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT will want to have GRUB_TIMEOUT set
to ‘0’ so that the menu is not displayed at all unless a key is pressed. Unset
In conjunction with ‘GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT’, set this to ‘true’ to suppress
the verbose countdown while waiting for a key to be pressed before displaying
the menu. Unset by default.
but maybe misread.
I don't even see the blank space now. Just a 10 second pause, then the boot
continues, with output to the console like before.

Yep. I already have that. Like you noticed I already have all the
full/complete ouput. No problems there
