I thought I would have the best chance of installing Ubuntu on my new Ryzen 1700 by using the Zesty release in order to get the very latest kernel. Unfortunately, I get the following error when trying to run the installer:

I made sure to install the latest version of the BIOS (0503) on the motherboard (An ASUS B350-PLUS), but that didn't resolve the issue. In case it matters, I am running 32 GB of Corsair vengeance DDR4 memory.

Does anyone know how I might resolve this issue, or know another Linux distro I might have better luck with getting running on Ryzen?


This was a really dumb mistake, but one of the DIMMS was not properly fitted. I still get those error messages flash past not, but I get past it and into the installation.
