I don't see why you would want to remove this message. It's quite
useful as it shows progress in the early initialization stages of grub
and should grub crash before getting to the menu you would know it was
started at least. It's not possible to configure in a configuration
file because it is not loaded at this point yet.

Still the message is only in one place in the source and if you remove
the printf it is not shown.

It is usually not visible in graphics mode because it is cleared when
grub switches to graphics and it does not stay long enough to be

To sum up if you installed a version of grub with this printf removed
you would not see the message. The default grub build would always
show it.
