Problems with boot-Persistent Soft Lockup

Postby Acescout92 » 2018-01-08 19:03

Hi Everyone! New to the board and new to Linux in general. Wanted to start with Debian since it seemed like a great distro to start learning Linux with, but I keep running into pretty massive issues after installation. I'm trying to install to an SSD. I can get to GRUB, and select to boot to my Linux drive. After that, however, usual start jobs seem to run into a wall and soft lockups keep getting thrown. After a while it just sits there filling out various bugs. I'm not sure what information would be useful, so I'll start with an overview of my hardware and an attached picture of the issue. I'm trying to install Debian 9 via netinst ISO bootable USB drive. Any help would be most appreciated!
CPU- Intel i5 6600K
MOBO- ASUS ROG STRIX Z270H
PSU- Corsair RM 1000
RAM - 24GB (3 x 8GB) Ballistix DDR4
GPU- Gigabyte GTX 1070
OS- Debian 9

When at first you don't succeed with Debian, consider Ubuntu or Mint. :wink:

My best guess on the offending screen output would be a skipped or fubar'd install step.

Nobody would ever ask questions If everyone possessed encyclopedic knowledge of the man pages.

So, I had actually had Debian up and running on a different HDD. Decided I wanted to have it on an SSD and this is the issue that's now come up. I really enjoyed Debian and would like to use it on an SSD as my primary.

I don't browse with images on, but I was going to take a look but imgur has this on the page above two image links:


and that is not in my budget for bandwidth today.Are they really that size?

I think that's a great idea. I replaced my hdd about 18 months ago and it was the best upgrade ever. I don't know why that would be an issue, but I guess it could be. Have you considered any settings in your bios that could affect this, like ide/ahci/raid?

When I replaced mine, I just cloned it.

Some things I would check, and I am by no means an expert here:
Did you verify the checksum on the netinst ISO?
What method did you use to put the netinst ISO on the USB?
Is that netinst USB the same you used when installing to the HDD?
Have you tried to install again?

Since you had it running from an HDD I would assume that it is NOT a Skylake issue, but one never knows. Is the SSD a m.2 PCIE drive or is it a SATA 3 drive. Not sure if that figures in to the situation but just asking.
I'm not irrational, I'm just quantum probabilistic.

Checksums are good, I used Rufus, and no, I used a different ISO and burned it to a CD.
I've tried to install it on various devices now, including HDDs. It always results in the same KIND of errors (soft lockup on various start tasks)

I just got a new motherboard yesterday, I'll double-check but I assume it's in AHCI mode.

I switched motherboards and this hasn't fixed the issue.

Should be clear, I'm running into the same issues when I install from the same CD I used, as well. I'm assuming this is a Skylake issue.
