View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dual Boot Install Stops With IRQ Errors

October 14th, 2014, 04:49 AM
I have tried the install of Ubuntu and Mint to dual boot on my HP 360. I've followed the pre-setup and boot with Ubuntu on a USB stick. The process starts just fine and then ends with an IRQ error.

I have a HP Privilion 360 with an Intel N3530 @ 2.16 GHZ CPU 64 bit with 8 Gig of RAM. I've gone through the process of freeing space on the HD and disabling FastBoot and IEF boot. I created a USB stick with Unbootin with both Ubuntu 14.04 and Mint 17 - 64 bit. All goes well until I tell the installation to load in try-first mode. When the boot begins it runs OK and then stops with the final lines as follow:

Stop mount in file system on boot

[23.8091301] 12_c designware 80860F41:00: failure requesting IRQ 32

[23.814954] 12_c designware 80860F41:01: failure requesting IRQ 33

[48:155045] bug: soft lockup-CPU#3 stuck for 2251 [systemd-udevd:1039]

I'd really appreciate any help as to why this occurs and how to fix the problem so I get a real OS installed that I uses 98% of the time.

I had no idea what a 12_c designware is.

But it seems to be a touchpad that needs an added driver.

Not sure how you get past the IRQ errors, but I might try one of these boot options. Add like you would a nomodeset option.

BIOS live installer Boot Options
noapic nolapic noapci noirqpoll nosmp irqpoll

At grub menu you can use e for edit, scroll to linux line and replace quiet splash with nomodeset.
