Reboot Hangs At Dell Logo

Doing a reboot from Windows, either manually or automatically triggered (by, say, updates) the computer hangs on the Dell logo before the windows-loading-spinner comes up.

Powering off the computer and then starting it up works 95% of the time from this state.

Installing, say Fedora… the computer reboots properly.

Solution That Doesn't Work

In Power & Sleep Options, change from the "balanced" power plan to the "Performance" power plan.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
