I have flashed Linux Mint onto a USB stick and tried to install it on an Acer Aspire A315-41 laptop. Running live Linux Mint got me this error:
Firmware Bug: AMD-VI IOAPIC not in IVRS table Firmware Bug: AMD-VI IOAPIC not in IVRS table Firmware Bug: AMD-VI no southbridge IOAPIC found AMD-VI: Disabling interrupt remapping watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for 23s!
And then the last line loops, changing the number of CPUs; it tries with all 8 of them and then starts from zero. By running the live version in compatible mode I managed to install it, but now on boot the same error happens. I've searched around a lot but no fix works for me. How can I fix this?
