Kernel 6.9 & Manjaro upgraded to 24 - Stuck on start screen

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I installed Manjaro 24 and I love it. Thanks Manjaro Team!

The upgrade went well, after a couple of reboot and minor settings adjustment everything worked great. So I decided to install the Kernel 6.9.
My computer is a Minisforum UM790 pro (AMD 7940hs).
When I booting now:
1 - Grub is passed as usual.
2 - The Manjaro logo with 3 dots show up in 1080p resolution (same that the grub screen)
3 - The screen with the Manjaro logo resizes to 4k (which is my default resolution
Then it gets stuck there forever - the login screen never show up. the computer is not responsive except for ctrl+alt+del…

If I revert to Kernel 6.8 it works again: after point 3 the login screen shows up.
If I keep the Kernel 6.9 and push the “Esc” button during point 2, to see the terminal screen, then the point 3 never happens, it goes straight to the login screen - in 4k - and everything works perfectly.

Actually it works better than before since now the sleep mode and restart work without a glitch. Before the sleep mode wouldn’t work if I don’t log out first and for “restart” sequence would be stuck at some point (I’m suspecting a display issue for the restart since the computer seems to restart but the display remains off)

Anybody has any idea what could be my issue?
