I don’t know what’s wrong with the update a few weeks ago but since then, when I was still on the Cinnamon Spin, my LUKS prompt have become text-based and the usual spinner with HP’s logo is now only three square dots in the middle of the screen. Even after completely wiping out everything on my drive and reinstalling Fedora (I switched to the main Workstation for F37) the issue still persists.
Is it because of Windows? I have been dual-booting Windows 10 and Fedora for more than two months now, but this issue happens only recently. I haven’t got a chance to install only Fedora on my drive, though. Also I’ve tried changing the default plymouth theme to bgrt and spinner but to no avail.
Oh, and also ever since then I’ve also been getting some texts that say something about “broadcasting” and “shutdown” when I shut it down. It often flashes for just less than a second, I haven’t been able to take a photo of it.

Huh, so apparently it’s missing the “splash” parameter…?
Do you have recommendation on how to properly edit grub2.cfg file? I found multiple different ways to do it. I do have backups already but currently I don’t have that much time to reinstall the OS.
I tried adding the “splash” parameter after “quiet”, and it is still there after I reboot it, but i’m not getting the usual boot graphics. Just saw other post that said you don’t have to put “splash” parameter if plymouth is using splash. So, I guess the issue is in plymouth?
Talk about plymouth, when I tried changing the default theme I ran
Is it something like this?
Something to do with a timing that I won’t be able to do much about? TBH, I’m not sure I understand enough to know where to start. For now I’m changing my plymouth theme to “details”, the output lines one, since the background is darker.
Trying to the configuration sequence on the serial console, I created a completely new image on the SD card. Rebooted. Absolutely no video image on the HDMI monitor, but on the serial console I at least got some type of status as the Pi booted.
But… I still get no configuration screen or such… just a demand for login. And since this is a Pi4B ARM64 image, not a lot of options to tweak it.

Fedora Linux 37 (Workstation Edition)
Kernel 6.0.7-301.fc37.aarch64 on an aarch64 (ttyS1)
I see examples of doing configuration of Fedora via serial console, but they are NOT version 37, but version 33, 35, etc.
