I don’t know of a solution so if anyone can help, I would also appreciate it
I know it was not there before. It was added sometime with F38 (or maybe even with F37) and I see it as well. The display is so short as to not become an issue unless one is really anal about having the screen black before the boot gui shows.

I would still have another question to ask you: to make sure that at the boot Grub always chooses the version with the newer kernel (at the start it offers three different versions of the OS with three different versions of the kernel), I have to set…
