Given that you have not changed an entry in your boot loader for
sometime or perhaps ever it would actually be better that you
setup Fedora using sd-boot as the boot manager and compare changing
configuration entry in sd-boot with doing the exact same thing in
and share your feedback and experience of doing so with the rest of
community rather then someone provide you with an answer.
I would try it, but I don't know how, since Fedora uses GRUB2. Should I
install ArchLinux in a VM or is there a way to try it with Fedora? Is
there any documentation for how to install it and how to use it?
