To be clear, as I alluded to in my previous replies, none of my (100+) OS 
installations has rhgb or quiet on any kernel line in any stanza I ever use, 
while nearly every kernel line among Grub stanzas contains a 3. I detest 
obfuscatory GUI startup. I read every word you wrote, and asked again only 
because I have no idea why it never shows up, other than maybe it's that 
illegible blue text I do notice, or it's getting lost among the screen 
clearing that occurs more than once during each boot. Should I just hold down 
the I key as soon as anything shows up on screen? If not, what landmarks 
among messages should I wait for? I tried random times, but I get either 
nothing at all, or just streams of iiiiiiii or IIIIIIII.
