on the laptop it seems I have the Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1650634 
problem. It is bios boot.

My workstation has UEFI boot, but it has now been clean installed with 
7.5 and until there is a fix to the above bugzilla i'll hold off on 
doing much other than update the kernel.

Thanks for response, i will use the removal of rhgb quiet.
