I have a fresh build based on the MSI PRO B550M-VC WIFI motherboard. I've installed the latest BIOS and I'm trying to install Ubuntu 22.04.3 on it via live USB.
- I know the USB works because I've used it to install Ubuntu on the computer I'm typing this from, and a couple of others
- I know the target machine works fine because I can use a spare Debian hard drive to boot it and poke around
- I've disabled UEFI boot in BIOS (LEGACY+UEFI in boot options and set the "Windows OS Configuration" option to CSM. There has never been a windows installation on this computer and hopefully never will be)
When I insert the live USB and select "Try or Install Ubuntu", it starts the boot routine and hangs. If I hit
e and remove
quiet splash, it goes into
booting command list
then dumps out a bunch of hardware connection messages (all successful, including the USB key and the SATA drive I'm tying to install to), ending with my USB keyboard and then hangs there. I've let it sit longer than 15 minutes and haven't seen it progress further.
What am I doing wrong?
