I don’t believe Manjaro is on 5.2 so you’re probably safe there. Next would be turning off legacy/csm mode as another thread suggests a GPU doesn’t work with 16x PCIe off the chipset while in legacy mode (irrelevant if that’s not the case tho).
Could you not even run the live cd or did it fail to boot after install? Details
Initially i used the stable manjaro and that printed out the systemd(?) messages during boot with all failed.
After searching a bit around i found out through a forum post that the RC5 does work.
That got me past the systemd and gave me all OK.
Then it got stuck with as last message “Started TLP system startup/shutdown”.
Well Manjaro stable is at 4.19 I believe? I’d try Pop OS or something else that is on 5.0 to 5.1. I can’t confirm what kernel RC5 is on atm but 5.2 isn’t good for VFIO either if that was something you wanted to try. There is a regression that causes some VM stability issues that I don’t think has been patched yet. Just mentioning it as you said virtualize everything, but not sure if that included Windows.
edit err… apparently Manjaro stable is at 5.3 rc atm? Strange it’s been a week or so but I swear my manjaro was at 4.19 before I wiped it. I could be getting it confused with my other linux box tho.
oO; I didn’t know about the 5700 bit. Hmmm… Doesn’t sound like there are a lot of good options. Something bleeding edge that starts with a minimal installer? You might try the Arch community? That might be a tall order though if you’ve never installed linux without a LiveCD/Gui installer.
I’m guessing someone might be able to come with a better idea?
I have a Gigabyte X570-I Aorus Pro Wifi motherboard, 3700X, 16GB 3600MHz sdram, Gigabyte Aorus NVME Gen4 2tb M.2 and a Radeon VII. I put Manjaro on a usb and it would not post on this system, Ubuntu 19.04 worked but wifi wasn’t recognized and wouldn’t work. Elementary OS Juno failed to boot, Kubuntu 19.04 booted and installed fine with wifi working out of the box. I settled on Salient OS and am still in the process of installing software and my favorite games.
I am having the same problem. My hardware is a little different (MSI MPG X570 Gaming Pro Carbon Wifi, 3900x and ASUS RX 5700 XT) but it’s the same symptom that I can’t get past the boot of the installer. I have tried the following OSes and failed to get it installed with any:
Manjaro KDE 18.04, 18.1.0-RC8
Arch 2019.01.01 and 2019.08.01
Ubuntu 18.04.2, 18.04.3 and 19.04
PopOS 18.04 and 19.04
Debian 9.9.0 and 10.0.0
I did see a post somewhere that mentioned FreeBSD 12 worked out of the box and it did successfully install for me as well.
I have updated the BIOS to the latest 7B93v124(Beta version) and tried the installations again to no avail.
The errors I get in almost all of the attempts is related to AHCI not recognized. Each installer tries to reset the controller but can’t see any SATA drives (apparently). I’m not clear on this though because as an example with some of the more verbose installers I could see the drives listed but still got the error.
I’m not a complete noob but my previous Linux installs have gone (maybe fortunately or unfortunately) pretty smooth.
I am thinking I may just have to wait until a different BIOS becomes available or start learning FreeBSD.
Just wanted to add my experience in case it helps and see if anyone has any advice.
