I have tried disable fapolicyd and SELinux (by mounting and editing config files), but still cannot boot.

I guess boot got lockup because I don't have TPM module.

I have tested on machines with TPM module and found no issues.

I've just found the problem, I need to remove `fips=1` from kernel option. Also I already have HMAC file in /boot/.

Perhaps, AMD Ryzen 2700 doesn't support FIPS? Because Intel Core i7-10750H boot just fine with `fips=1`.

Probably related to:

Hello. Thanks for report and investigation.
No, it's not related to issues with 4.18.0-240.22.1, that was broken kernel version and since then all kernel versions are checked to not repeat that problem.

Usually we ask to check on CentOS or RHEL to find out if this AlmaLinux specific or upstream problem.
If it's upstream one then the best option would be check on CentOS Stream to find out if the problem is fixed already.
If not, then you can open a bug to CentOS Stream bugzilla:

Of course it's up to you. But it would be great if you could check it because working with CentOS Stream bugs helps the whole EL community.

You're welcome. Thank you for reply.

Noted, I'll try and check on CentOS Stream.
