T859 appears to have added support in the 1.2 branch. It installs via forced uefi boot, but boots to the grub prompt.

Just adding a "me too" to this issue.
I ran into the same behavior of a 1.3 rolling install booting to a GRUB prompt post-install.
On Supermicro Atom C3000 with the installer works fine but appears to force UEFI for the install process (even if legacy boot is enabled). The result after install is that the system boots to a GRUB prompt.
Debian 10.2 installation works fine so I don't think it's a hardware compatibility issue or BIOS bug. Something about the way GRUB is installed and configured during the install image process may be broken.
Until UEFI support is more mature the quick fix may be to prompt the user for legacy or UEFI install during the install process rather than making an assumption based on the kernel detecting UEFI support.
T1940 should fix this. It would be pretty trivial to add the ability to choose between EFI and BIOS when EFI is present, though this fix should make it unnecessary
