After having build my new pc, I wanted to install ubuntu 18.04 LTS ont it.
So, I made a live usb with the Unetbootin tool.
When I am trying to boot on it, the screen freezes and I am getting this error message:
“Couldn’t get size: 0x800000000000000e”
I do precise that my pc contains the last Nvidia RTX 2080 super (released in July) and the amd Ryzen 3700x.
I have read that this message could come out from some issues with the graphics drivers so I tried to connect directly my screen to the motherboard HDMI output put the motherboard didn’t send any signal to the screen, most probably because my graphic card was connected.
I also read that ryzens 3000 could generate some issues on booting with certains linux distros but that shouldn’t concern ubuntu 18.04 LTS
Here is my build in details:
Motherboard: Asus x570 prime pro
Processor: Ryzen 3700x
Graphics card: Nvidia gigabytes rtx 2080 super
Hard drive: Nvme samsung evo plus 500 Go
I would like to point out that this not my first installation, and that I never got such issues.
What would be the solution: updating the bios, using an other distrbs etc…?
