Gigabyte x370 gaming 5 Linux issues

Alright I'm using a gaming 5 from gigabyte and I can't get Linux to boot on it, in Wendell's review I noticed he was using fedora which I read is fine on this board and see a bunch of documented problems with Ubuntu based distros having problems with this board. Specifically "unexpected irq trap at vector 7" anyone else come across this problem and have a possible fix for it. Won't boot, I've head about apci settings only detecting one core. Or using a custom kernel to get it to boot. Any help would be great full. Otherwise I will probably just go with a crosshair 6 hero.
