View Full Version : Installing Ubuntu 16.04.03 on Desktop, Cannot install due to repeating PCIe error

September 6th, 2017, 02:19 AM

I've been trying to install Ubuntu 16.04.03 but I've been getting this error:

PCIe Bus Error: severity=Corrected, type=Physical Layer, id=00e0(Reciever ID)

This happens when I try to press "Try Ubuntu", in which case the PC switches to a GRUB-like shell that repeatedly prints out the error and crashes the computer. When I try to install Ubuntu install of pressing the "try ubuntu" icon, I can go through the steps to install, but when I actually attempt installation the same error pops up and eventually my USB runs out of memory due to syslog.

I searched up this problem and want to try to add kernel parameters pci=nomsi or pci=noaer, but I can't seem to get to the menu for that as I'm trying to install Ubuntu and don't have it installed yet.

Any advice? I've been stuck on this problem for a while, will appreciate any advice on this issue!

Hiya , the error seems to suggest an issue in communications with a PCIe device.. Something on that bridge device is not happy!reboot to the livecd/usb again, only this time don't try or install ubuntu..with the default kernel parameter, don't add any other. ones you are in the live session open a terminal and run $ journalctl -p 3 -xb

do you see the same error printed , if so note down the PCIe ID, something like :
pcieport 0000:00:1d.2:

then in a terminal run: $ lspci -nn , and $ lspci -tv

Also what brand/model system?
What video card/chip?
UEFI or BIOS install?

Shows install with screen shots. Both BIOS purple accessibility screen & UEFI black grub menu screen
At grub menu you can use e for edit, scroll to linux line and replace quiet splash with nomodeset.
How to set NOMODESET and other kernel boot options in grub2 - both BIOS liveCD & grub first boot ( also UEFI with grub)
How to add boot parameters, grub menu after install (also grub when UEFI)
