I created a Linux Live USB key with Ubuntu 18.04 and turned off Secure Boot on my Surface Laptop 3, but whatever I try it just fails to boot! :-(
Regular boot (has "quiet splash" option)
MODSIGN: Couldn't get UEFI db list
Boot in compatability mode (has "nosplash" option)
hdaudioC0D2: Unable to bind the codec
No success with other versions of Ubuntu and Linux Mint I tried either. I tried modifying the boot options manually but I'm not sure how to turn off or choose a different audio driver/codec.
Regular boot after removing "quiet splash" option
Laptop starts getting loud and overheating after the line
[ OK ] Started udev Kernel Device Manager.
Regular boot after replacing "quiet splash" option with "text"
Either the same as above happens or I get this output:
A start job is running for Set the console keyboard layout (13s / no limit) Kernel panic - not syncing: Timeout: Not all CPUs entered broadcast exception handler
