I was able to do what you asked, except there was no payload line in grub, and no drm in modules. So Plymouth was there on reboot.
My password still didn't work, but going into the console and logging in as root, I was able to reset the passwd. Then I restarted X (don't know if that was necessary) from the graphical login screen and logged in with the new password.
So it seems that the install didn't record my password correctly. Could it have something to do with length or special symbols? My passwords tend to be on the secure side.

I had this randomly and couldn't figure a pattern. The culprit seems to be changing the KDM theme (which, unlike other settings I change, requires admin privs). After I do that, on next boot, many user settings are reset to default: I'd set Dolphin to single-click behavior but it reverts to double-click; Akregator RSS wants Chromium to launch links in, I have to reset the default browser to firefox; the icons are back to Oxygen; the theme is back to Oxygen from QTCurve; the fonts return to default instead of the larger settings I use. Not all settings, for instance plasma theme sticks. Why is it doing that? Wastes time having to reset stuff.
Also, launching System Settings from konsole gives this: "QDBusConnection: session D-Bus connection created before QCoreApplication. Application may misbehave." But I'm not sure that's of any importance / relevance.
Other than this occasional settings hiccup, it installed fine and runs rock solid!

Your guess is as good as mine!

Also, your website's About page states, "SolydXK and Linux Mint closely work together to make our distributions even better." Would you care to elaborate, please?
As of today, I will discontinue my work on both the unofficial LMDE KDE and the unofficial LMDE Xfce.
Clem is searching for a maintainer so that you will be able to have these CE's for a long time to come.
I want to thank you all for the help, support and your valuable feedback to make these CE's as good as they are now.
It was a lot of fun doing and I absolutely couldn't have done it without you.
