Arch or any other os hangs at boot w/luks

Anyone have a clue what’s happening here? I’ve done my normal archlinux install I know works on any other machine, it just hangs at “starting the new kernel”

See attached. Any pointers or suggestions are welcome, I’ve been beating my head against the wall for 3 days trying to sort this out

Many thanks!

Sorry about the quality of the pic.

Ps, I know it’s 100% luks. It works fine without it.

Librem 14, I guess?

Yes, I was in a rush and forgot to specify.
