So, yes, you're using UEFI to boot. All you need to do is edit the
/boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg file and remove the "rhgb quiet" bit and
reboot. You should be fine.

Note that on your next kernel upgrade, however, the "rhgb quiet" will
reappear unless you edit the /etc/default/grub file and those bits from
the "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX" variable in there as well.
