I recently bought an HP 17-cb0011nv laptop and I was trying to install Linux on it. I tried to install several distros on it, like Ubuntu 18.04, 19.04 and even 19.10. The installation process was very buggy and after multiple tries I was able to install all of the above versions of Ubuntu. But none of them were stable. During the startup sequence the most frequent outcome were either a blank screen or the splash screen running indefinitely.
When on the splash screen, by pressing F3 I would get a fast never ending scrolling wall of text with ACPI errors. I then tried to boot with
ACPI=off from the grub menu and as a result it would crash around 30 seconds of usage or get a kernel panic (more often). After that I tried several other flags like
nolapic which seem to work more often (even though the performance suffers greatly). I am seriously very frustrated by this, and I have spent a lot of time already trying to fix it. Do you have any idea how can I fix it?
