#StackBounty: #debian #boot #grub #plymouth hide grub menu and initial loading message

Bounty: 50

With Debian 9.9 and GNOME 3.22, I’m trying to load the OS without boot menu. I’ve installed plymouth to show a graphical loading and set this options in grub:

GRUB_DEFAULT=0
GRUB_TIMEOUT=0
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true

But for a split second, I still see some kind of grub menu. This time with no options.

What I see is an image located here
/usr/share/images/desktop-base/desktop-grub.png, and a text that says

loading linux 4.9.0-9-amd64...
loading initial memory image...

Then plymouth theme is shown and normal boot happens.

Is it possible to hide this? I would like to just see the theme
