If no command outputs anything, terminal does not appear, so check that no output guess to terminal.

This is terminal window (same you get when entering CLI) where
messages from commands are displayed (do not forget that menu entry is
simply list of commands, so you *are* entering CLI in a sense). There
is no way to disable it. Several years ago openSUSE tried to make it
transparent, effectively hiding it; patch was dropped although I'm
still not sure if this was some fundamental grub problem or simply
unfortunate theme design.

If you are interested you could try it if it works for you.

While completely removing it may be technically possible (do not open
terminal window and add dummy output that does nothing) I'm not sure
it is good idea. You want to see errors if booting fails. Actually you
want to see where you are stuck as well - so I'd rather add more
output (like marking end of initrd loading).
