The mini.iso (graphical version) boots to a grub prompt.

Loading grub.cfg with 'configfile (hd0)/boot/grub/grub.cfg' works and 
afterwards the image works correctly.

I tried buster, bullseye rc1 and the daily image from 1.May.

The bullseye rc1 firmware netinst boots fine, so I'm guessing it's not 
due to bugs in this particular UEFI implementation.

In case it matters, the motherboard is ASRock B550M Steel Legend, 
firmware version 1.52, upgraded to 2.0.

Kind regards,

ACK, thanks.

OK, I've fixed the problem. The issue was a missing (redirecting)
grub.cfg in the image to redirect to the correct location where there
grub menu etc. is located. I've just pushed code to the d-i build repo
to add that now, and tested locally.

I think I'm probably too late to pick up the daily d-i build for
Wednesday, but this should definitely be fixed from Thursday onwards.
