    Secure boot is disabled as I had issues with that before.

    Just making sure. It shouldn't interfere with Intel Graphics drivers though, as correctly mentioned by oldfred but it's better, or more convenient, to have it disabled from the start.

    A firmware update should correct the issue in question. If not available now it should be, sooner than later.

    Hopefully sooner rather than later.

    I checked my BIOS firmware and I am on the latest version, so I'm a little stumped.

    In the meantime I've had to go back to 18.04 as I'm working from home and couldn't afford to lose anymore time messing around.

    Hopefully it won't be too long till this is fixed as I liked what I saw with 20.04.

    Wise decision.

    The first time I've read about this new feature at OMGUbuntu I had two thoughts: "Cool" and "this is going to screw up the boot in some odd computer creating a problem that wasn't there before".

    Just what is this "cool new feature"?
    What is the advantage that some of us are missing out on?

    The "cool new feature" is showing the vendor's logo in the same initial Ubuntu splash screen. The Ubuntu logo and the moving circle that replaced the dots have been conveniently move from the center screen to the bottom. It's just a more "Windowsesc" feature, there's nothing useful about it, just aesthetics.

    It works in one HP laptop I have but all my other computers are unbranded generic from top tier providers where pretty much everything is "to be filled by OEM" so nothing shows up in those.

    To speed boot slightly I replace quiet splash with noplymouth.
    I then do not get any splash screens, but do get scrolling list of boot process (that is then in log file).

    With my new NVMe drive it scrolls by so quick I cannot read it. With my old slow HDDs I used to be able to follow along the boot process.
    Or is it oldfred cannot read as fast as he used to?

    I can even turn this into a "feature". It's effectively a log on screen where you have to go through a procedure rather than simply enter a password!

    Still, it's a pain.
    I don't get the procedure for getting rid of it altogether. What is it that should be edited?

    I change this line in grub and run update grub.

    sudoedit /etc/default/grub
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="noplymouth i915.fastboot=1"
    sudo update-grub

    Experienced similar issue during Xubuntu development phase a two or three weeks ago on one system. Reported it as a bug along with log of how far system got during boot process - it wasn't very far. I had been running developmental Xubuntu for three or four months. The occurrence of problem was sporadic.
    My workaround whenever it happened - unplugged every cable that was not absolutely necessary, cold boot, after system booted, plugged in cables one-by-one. Don't know if that corrected it or not, probably not - just grasping at straws; however, an update/upgrade came down shortly afterwards and the issue never reoccurred. I assumed it had been corrected, but then again, maybe not.
    Cheers,
