I tried to install Manjaro KDE but when I try to boot into it, there will be texts like “Welcome to Manjaro Linux!” and lots of “OK” then the “PCIe Bus Error” would constantly apear on the screen. I’m dual booting it with Windows 10.
I’ve searched for similar problems like this and I have read that either I’d have to switch to older kernels or add some kernel boot parameter. But I don’t even know where to start or how to do those while in the GRUB Menu or if those are really the solutions for my problem.
By the way, I’m also having PCIe Bus Errors on my previous Linux Distros but the difference here is that I could boot and install them without encountering the errors yet, while in Manjaro KDE, I’d encounter those errors when trying to boot for the first time.
I’m using the laptop Asus VivoBook Max X441URK, with an i5-7200U CPU and NVIDIA GeForce 930MX GPU.
Stuff that I did:
- I used Rufus 3.1 in Windows 10 with these settings
and used the DD Image option.
- I have disabled Compatibility Mode (CSM), Secure Boot, Fast Boot, Fast Startup and Hybrid Sleep.
- I have cleaned up all dead data on my Windows System.
- I have already updated my BIOS to the latest version.
- I reordered the Boot Priority
There seems to be two partitions for Manjaro KDE when I use the DD Image option to create a bootable USB, as you can see in the picture. Is that normal?
The version of Manjaro KDE that I’m installing is version 17.1.12 Stable and was downloaded via torrent. I have also verified the ISO file’s integrity and it matches with the correct SHA-1 hash.
I hope somebody could provide me a clear solution that even a complete Linux newbie like me could follow and understand. Thanks.
