During installation on s390x-kvm-sle12, the worker is trying to use pty but even though grub seems to be loaded after failure, it might take longer than expected.

To try reproducing issue manually see

Investigate the issue and the failure frequency.

Maybe increasing the timeout would solve it.

We skip second stage there and try to connect to the VM after installation. There we have grub timeout disabled, so machine won't boot at all if enter is not presses. So sporadically we would wait for 120 for grub, and press enter afterwards when it was not there yet. PR addresses it to wait for grub longer and even if we miss it on the serial, we will select OS to boot still.
