My install was completed with
quiet loglevel=3 as kernel parameters in
/etc/default/grub. The boot was still not quiet but instead showing “Starting version XXX-arch” and removing vendor image. By adding
rd.udev.log-priority=3 I was able to silence this message and get the vendor image to display. This is based on https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=264217
My understanding is that this is the intended behavior and therefore I suggest adding a udev logging priority rule.
I’m running 5.13.13-zen installed with akm.
