    Re: GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3 motherboard not working with 64 bit kernel

    Here is my updated fix


    First enable iommu in the uefi by restarting your computer and pressing delete to enter the uefi


    plug your usb mouse, keyboard and thumbdrive in usb 2 ports.


    save and exit the uefi


    Then In Ubuntu:


    press Ctrl+Alt+T to open up a terminal


    run the following command: sudo gedit /etc/default/grub


    Edit the empty quotes in this line to read: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="iommu=soft"


    save changes to grub and exit gedit and the terminal


    Open up a new terminal with ctrl+alt+t


    run the following command: sudo update-grub


    then exit the terminal using this command: exit


    Restart your computer press delete to get back into the uefi


    Disable iommu in bios, load optimized defaults and restart.


    usb, 2.0 usb 3.0 and networking all work now in Ubuntu, and disabling iommu in bios helps prevent windows freezes that was occurring if you are running a dual boot environment.


    If the above post helps anyone I am happy.
