Question.

That replacement model number looks like an SSD.

Is the old drive an SSD?

This is just IMHO and doubtless others will disagree, but on my own
machines, if I have space for both, I put the OS on an SSD and /home on
a conventional spinning hard disk.

That's the current setup, for exactly the reasons you gave. A friend
who is more current with hardware convinced me to try an EVO for /home.
/ will continue to live on /dev/nvme0n1p2, again for the same logic
you gave.

Got my new breaker box today, and once again, still have the actual
login weirdness. (back to original topic?)

One thing to note, with the first (non-working) login prompt, the
username is NOT echoed back to the screen. I just keep hitting ENTER
until I get a `login: ` which echoes back - then it works.

I wonder if some systemd thread isn't really finished at the point where
it starts throwing these "give root password for maintenance" things.

One workplace acquaintance remarked that it was as if the system was confused
into thinking it was in runlevel 1 (to use the old terminology).

I find the following in journalctl for today's reboot: note the timestamps.

Seems like it is trying to prompt me to log in well before the system is
properly up?

TIA
