I see two boot partitions:

But it says "efi" not "uefi" and I dunno what the difference is.
There really isn't. "efi" and "uefi" are synonymous in this context. If
you use UEFI booting, then the boot logic mounts the UEFI boot partition
at /boot/efi and that's where the UEFI boot magic happens. If you're not
sure if you use UEFI, try "ls /sys/firmware/efi". If you get:
[root@prophead ~]# ls /sys/firmware/efi
ls: cannot access '/sys/firmware/efi': No such file or directory
then you're not using UEFI.
As far as the grub.cfg being hidden on UEFI systems, it really isn't.
The path to it is "/boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg".
Well I see:
[bobg@Box10 ~]$ ls /sys/firmware/efi
config_table efivars esrt fw_platform_size fw_vendor runtime
And examining that file I see "rhgb quiet" in it. Can I edit that out of
there? Is there a special procedure to make the change?
Or is what I wanted to do just not worth the effort? It's really nit
picking as long as things work, but if something goes wrong and slows
the boot process I feel better seeing what's going on ...
I have a vague recollection there was something in the MSI setup about
uefi, maybe I need to have another look at that? Hate to risk hosing a
