GRUB needs to be selected manually else this task remains in hold state

Description of problem:

Scaling of worker node is not happening automatically it needs a manual intervention for GRUB selection. 

Version-Release number of the following components:

Tested version: registry.svc.ci.openshift.org/ipv6/release:4.3.0-0.nightly-2020-02-05-064223-ipv6.3  

How reproducible:

Deploy an Openshift IPI cluster in latest fork ipv6/release:4.3.0-0.nightly-2020-02-05-064223-ipv6.3 once the cluster is up 


oc get nodes
NAME                                         STATUS   ROLES    AGE   VERSION
master-0.kni7.cloud.lab.eng.bos.redhat.com   Ready    master   22h   v1.16.2
master-1.kni7.cloud.lab.eng.bos.redhat.com   Ready    master   22h   v1.16.2
master-2.kni7.cloud.lab.eng.bos.redhat.com   Ready    master   22h   v1.16.2
worker-0.kni7.cloud.lab.eng.bos.redhat.com   Ready    worker   25m   v1.16.2
worker-1.kni7.cloud.lab.eng.bos.redhat.com   Ready    worker   20h   v1.16.2
worker-2.kni7.cloud.lab.eng.bos.redhat.com   Ready    worker   21h   v1.16.2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Deploy the cluster 
2. Use the link -> https://github.com/openshift-kni/baremetal-deploy/blob/master/install-steps.md#deploy-the-provisioner-node-as-a-worker-node-using-metal3 to provision the worker using the bmh 
3. The worker will not come up until you go to idrac and select the GRUB menu manually. 

Actual results:
Worker-0 should come up without any manual intervention

Expected results:
worker node should come up without any manual intervention.

We haven't been able to reproduce, please re-open if you can provide more information. It may be an issue that needs to be discussed with the CoreOS team. The baremetal IPI installer isn't involved with grub on the installed machine OS.
