I'm trying to set up a HP Compaq 6720s laptop with Linux for my mum. This is her 2nd notebook, the 1st one was an old Celeron running Mint 17.1. So thats why I started again with LM 18.3.
I had it all setup running LM 18.3 on a regular HDD and it worked fine. I installed the updates and then boot time just skyrocketed, I'm talking about 10-15 min before being able to use the laptop. I used the workaround found here, as it was showing the same errors. After that everything worked great, fast boot...
In the meantime I got a hand on a SSD and Tara was released so I thought of switching both. Now is the problem that I can't boot into the Live medium, not LM19, not Ubuntu 18.04. The same error messages are shown during boot:
[drm:drm_atomic_helper_commit_cleanup_done [drm_kms_helper]] *ERROR* [CRTC:26:pipe A] flip_done timed out, and I get to thelogo with the 5 dots. It doesn't matter which way I create the USB install medium (rufus, Unetbootin, Etcher) or if I use Mint or Ubuntu(-flavours). I onced managed to boot using the compatibility mode but during install the installer just kept crashing.
And the pic for errors presented in initram, I think: errors initram
Any help of getting it running would be great, and especially my mum would be thrilled to finally start using a dualcore machine and 4GB RAM.
