I recently bought one of hp’s latest OMEN PCs, for the first time, (notice “bought” instead of “built” i.e. n00b) and I was looking for something that’s decent for small-mid size AI workloads. For someone who has been always using Linux on laptops, I thought installing Linux wouldn’t be that different on a PC. Create a bootable Linux USB, change boot order in the BIOS and the rest is doughnuts. So I prepared the USB, changed the boot order, and this is what I get:
ima: Error Communicating to TPM chip
So I set the TPM option to Hidden, reboot, and I get a blank (teared) screen with badly distorted unreadable text.
here is the specs:
- intel’s i9 10900K
- HyperX XMP 64 GB
- NVIDIA 2080 RTX Ti
- Intel Z490 motherboard by Dorado OC
with a machine that’s more on the pricey side, and even after installing the latest updates of windows 10 2004, NVIDIA 455 drivers; the system is far from stable. This is why I’m disparate for help to get Linux running.
any help is appreciated
