I have an old-ish Lenovo ideapad 110-15ISK with Fedora 30 installed (and a LUKS-encrypted SSD as storage).
When I boot this machine:
- The "Lenovo" logo (actually just a text) is displayed, briefly.
- The boot manager screen is displayed with selectable kernels
- I select a kernel.
- The "Lenovo" logo is displayed, briefly.
- A password text entry widget is displayed with the "fedora(∫)" logo at the bottom of the screen.
- I enter the password to decrypt the LUKS-ified SSD.
- The boot process continues while the following is displayed:
- The "Lenovo" logo in the middle of the screen and
- The "fedora(∫)" logo at the bottom of the screen.
- Finally the KDE login screen takes over.
Why does (7) happen? How is it possible to have the "Logo mashup" unless Fedora comes with a special selection of manufacturer logos to display? Because at that point, it is systemd that is in charge of the monitor (maybe via the framebuffer). It is quite mysterious.
