View Full Version : Kernel panic with new raw NVMe SSD plugged in 16.04

August 2nd, 2017, 12:36 AM

I'm running Ubuntu 16.04 on my regular hard disk. Now, I have a new NAND NVMe SSD (Samsung 3.2TB) that I would like to migrate to. So I plugin my new SSD using PCIE NVMe adapter into PCIE slot in order to format and install new Ubuntu on it. But as soon as I plugin new SSD, and when I start my Ubuntu again from my normal hard drive, it does not start. I see some stack trace. My kernel version is 4.4.0-87-generic if that matters.

Let me know if I can provide more details.

gshockneo; Hello;

SSDs require that AHCI ( and if available IOMMU ) be enabled in bios . Sometimes these settings can be difficult to find and set.
Case in point is my old Phoenix bios where It is enabling raid that also enables AHCI .
AHCI == Advanced Host Controller Interface

my bit to try and help
