nvidia driver issue loading at boot

Hi all,
i am opening this new topic starting from what the user had here, because i have the same identical issue.
However there isn't any clear solution, and what he did didn't work for me.
just few information:
- do not have the xorg file
- i set the modeset in /etc/default/grub

# cat /etc/default/grub
# GRUB boot loader configuration

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="loglevel=3 quiet nvidia-drm.modeset=1" 

- i tried also to add nvidia modules in the mkinitcpio

# cat /etc/mkinitcpio.conf 

# vim:set ft=sh
# The following modules are loaded before any boot hooks are
# run.  Advanced users may wish to specify all system modules
# in this array.  For instance:
#     MODULES=(piix ide_disk reiserfs)
MODULES=(nvidia nvidia_modeset nvidia_uvm nvidia_drm)

installed packages are:

# pacman -Q | grep nvidia
nvidia 460.32.03-3
nvidia-prime 1.0-4
nvidia-settings 460.27.04-1
nvidia-utils 460.32.03-1
opencl-nvidia 460.32.03-1

This is the error i get n the Xorg.0.log file:

[     6.160] (**) NVIDIA(0): Option "MetaModes" "nvidia-auto-select +0+0"

As happened in the other post, stopping the lightdm service and starting xfce4 from command line, the glx_info -B returned NVIDIA.

Can you please help me troubleshooting?
Maybe is lightdm the cause of this problem.

Re: nvidia driver issue loading at boot

in the meanwhile I found this post on reddit where it is suggested to set lightdm to wait for video driver to be loaded first. I am using a ssd, maybe that could be the case.
if that's the solution i will update the post.
