That made no difference. Then I did "grub2-mkconfig". Still no
The documentation could be out of date. That's what's in
my /etc/default/grub file, and I commented it out in order to get the
style of grub.cfg *with* submenus, and that worked. You do have to
regenerate the grub.cfg file in order for these settings to take effect,
and you have to do it in the /boot/grub2 directory with the -o command,
grub2-mkconfig -o grub.cfg
You probably did it this way, but it isn't clear to me from your
description, so I thought I'd say it again.

I couldn't find anything about GFX, GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX, or
GFXPAYLOAD in the pinfo output. I found some documentation in the
GNU GRUB web site. Based on that, I tried "auto" on the right side
of the '='. No difference, even after re-running grub2-mkconfig.
It's not the text in the grub menu or the grub shell that I'm trying
to change. It's the text of the boot logging that shows up after the
grub menu goes away (times out), or after I hit the enter key to
select "Fedora" for booting. Is that what GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX
controls? The GNU documentation gave no examples (that I saw) of
what to put on the right side of the '='. What goes there?
All of these settings are under Configuration -> Simple Configuration
from the main menu for pinfo grub2. If I understand what you are saying
correctly, yes, that is what GFXPAYLOAD controls.
If you changed those in the /etc/default/grub file, and ran the above
command again, and it didn't change the boot messages, then that
isn't the setting you need. Try, order matters,
The early boot is problematic because the video modes available to
grub2 are restricted, so you might not be able to get what you want
