The 'blacklisting' mentioned (I think) is done on the Kernel cmd line
and ( I assume, since I didn't change it) is done by the nVidia

I was using akmod-nvidia. The issue is that the kernel or BIOS isn't
accepting an unsigned kernel module.
If I turn on EUFI, system won't load the nvidia kernel module. Turn off
EUFI, I don't have any issues.
I have searched and I can create a key but as far as I am concerned,
this should be part of the akmods-nvidia package.
Do you do testing with EUFI turned on?
This machine will be a dual boot with Windows 10 (needed for some games)
and Fedora so EUFI is going to be required.
