Wild guess : node is configured for UEFI and not legacy, *but* not with
secureboot enabled ?

See https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=15522 if that matches with what
you have.

Bug closed as it was fixed with a newer shim pkg, that is also the one
used in 7.7 and it doesn't make sense to still deploy 7.6 while you also
confirm that it works fine with 7.7 :)
