    Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    Hey guys, first post here. For the past few days, I have been struggling to install Ubuntu (from a flash drive) to my hard drive of type nvme. I've tried many solutions, but to no avail.

    [Warning: I'm a HUGE noob when it comes to linux / tech stuff. If you need some information, I'd really appreciate it if you could explain the steps to get the information, Thank you!]

    I build a PC with the following components:
    MSI b550-a pro motherboard
    Ryzen 5 3600 CPU
    Radeon RX 580 Graphics Card
    Adapta sxg6000 M.2 hard drive

    I have two M.2 hard drives, on one I have downloaded Windows 10 successfully. I removed this hard drive and inserted the other so that I could install Ubuntu, but am not having any luck.

    What I've done so far:
    Change boot order in BIOS to boot to the flash drive, then a (grub?) menu would come up and I'd choose Ubuntu. From there, it would either freeze on the loading (Pro Series) screen,
    or if I pressed enter, I could see a long line of errors. Some of which included iomu ivd0 amd-vi timing out, stdin-invalid argument, etc.
    Instead of choosing Ubuntu in the (grub?) menu, I edited it and inserted "nomodeset acpi=off" inbetween quiet and splash, and I was able to boot to the flash usb! Progress, but that's
    where the progress quickly ended.
    Every time I try to install the Ubuntu 20.04, I get the error "Executing 'grub-install /dev/nvme0n1' failed. This is a fatal error'. From here, I've attempted to do some partitioning with GPart,
    and I have also tried boot-repair (which always gives me an error).

    At this point, I don't know what to do. If you guys have any ideas, I'd really appreciate it. Like I said, if you want any info, please let me know how I can obtain this info.

    Thanks

    Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    First ensure your firmware is up-to-date from the vendor for your motherboard and SSD. The 20.04 kernel is 5.4, so consider trying a later one like 5.7 if all else fails. Next, search the askubuntu site for IOMMU then your msib550, then ryzen 3600. Might be some tips on getting your machine to work. Lastly, the installer will still fail for UEFI mode when the EFI is not on sda. See lanuchpad bug 1396379, the workaround suggested is to do the install from the "Try" desktop of the installer, then remount the desired EFI at /boot/eri.

    Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    Hey there, I have read the launchpad bug's comments, and am a bit confused. I'm hoping you can help clear this up? I have a USB Flash Drive and a hard drive I'm trying to install to. Would it be correct to use GParted to partition the hard drive into ext4, EFI, and then mount the EFI of the hard drive to /target/boot/efi,or am I mounting the EFI of the flash drive? I'm just getting a bit confused between the two. Also, if a mount point does not exist, should I just manually create the directories? Thank you

    B550 is bleeding edge.
    When searching for that Adapta sxg6000 drive, only your posts show up. None from any vendor. Some NVMe SSDs don't have good drivers.

    Might be your sda is the install media, in which case not sure if those inst. would work (filesystem might be readonly?). I've always just done the EFI creation manually -- create the three directories (EFI, Boot, ubuntu) and copy in three files (grubx64.efi, shimx64.efi and the stub grub.cfg). Edit the UUID of your Ubuntu root into the three line stub grub.cfg, and if you set the Boot up with grubx64.efi and shimx64.efi renamed as bootx64.efi, the device should boot (even without an explicit OS nvram entry which would boot the ...ubuntu/ efi files.

    Even if different brand, most issue are by common chipset of motherboard.
    Essential to have latest UEFI & NVMe firmware updates.

    Asus ROG strix b450-F
    https://askubuntu.com/questions/1267...146118_1267714
    Asus ROG Strix B450 E motherboard UEFI update worked
    https://askubuntu.com/questions/1174...960921_1174679
    Asus Rog Strix B550 Disable IOMMU
    https://askubuntu.com/questions/1265...141726_1265397

    If NVMe drive, it will not be /dev/sda, but /dev/nvme0n1.

    I only have ESP, / (root) and data partitions. With my smaller SSS, I had data on HDD. Now with a larger NVMe drive, I have most data on NVMe drive and HDD is backup and other "stuff".

    Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    I have an Asus ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING MB. Don't remember any problems specific to Ubuntu/Linux.

    The information from that askUbuntu B450 link is out of date. Ryzen MBs over about 6 months old shouldn't have any RAM compatibility issues anymore. I've been running non-approved RAM since the beginning. Just use the XMP profile - AMD calls that something else.

    As for NVMe - can't say. My SSD is SATA m.2 in that machine.

    My BIOS is the latest version, and I have attempted the install from both the M.2 and a SATA-connected SSD, and both are giving me the same error.

    --- Also --- Attempted a boot-repair and received the following error log (long)

    Please use Code Tags if posting longer terminal or text output. Easy to add with Forum's advanced reply and # icon.

    But with Boot-Repair better to just post the link to the Summary Report it gives you.

    You must have an UEFI setting somewhere:
    Error: NVram is locked
    Report also only shows sda, no NVMe drive.
    Either needs firmware update or settings in UEFI to be seen.

    Re: Struggling to install Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to newly built PC

    Hey @oldfred sorry about that. This is my first post here. I will use Code tags next time.

    In the MSI Bios, the boot mode is "UEFI". And the reason the report only shows SDA is because I took out the NVME's and have been
    testing with SSD's so I wouldn't harm my good hard drives. The errors I've been getting have been the same between the hard drives, so
    I have a hard time imagining it's the hard drive's fault.

    What does "NVram is locked" mean? For your information, after building the PC, I inserted one M.2 drive in the computer, installed Windows 10
    then removed the M.2 Drive, and inserted my 2nd M.2 Drive and attempted to install Linux on it. After failing I took out that M.2 drive and replaced
    it with a SSD for further testing. If there's any more info I can provide, please let me know. Thank you.
