Can you try a standard setup with the patch at [1] applied to your
boot1.efi? Standard setup being /boot/loader.efi in place and
boot1.efi copied over to your ESP.

I *think* this might help your situation, but I've no real idea. If I
know what I'm doing (which I don't), then this patch should (maybe?)
force your screen down into a lower resolution prior to drawing the
menu then reset it once more before it prints resolution information
and executes the kernel.

Maybe it'll fix it?
