Problem booting with kernel 6.9.5

@ac10n, I do not wish to hijack your thread and problem, but I ran into the exact same 6.9.5 problem this morning, with a Lenovo ThinkStation P3 Ultra with an NVIDIA RTX A4000 SFF, running Wayland however on Gnome. Only a black screen upon powering it on, yet not as brave as you on tinkering with kernel items and such.

I did do an inxi -Fzxx:

Following this thread with great interest and if you want to compare something / somewhere...?

As you note, this is hijacking the thread and can lead the discussion off on a tangent.
I am moving your post to its own thread since it deserves to be addressed appropriately.

Please continue to follow this thread since the fixes when found may be related to your problem.

The other thread did not work out for me, since the machine was set to “Secure Boot”. In the end decided to format the machine and install it completely a new, with “Secure Boot” disabled this time, making things work with kernel 6.95 thru 6.9.7 without the additional tricks required by others.

You probably could have just disabled secure boot in the bios with the same effect and not needed to reinstall.
