Manjaro i3 live boot failure - Ryzen 3700X - X370

I've been using manjaro i3 for a while now on my laptop (lenovo y50-70). Today I bought a new PC and unfortunately I am not able to get through the installation process. I get failure errors when trying to live boot (as shown on the screen)

My hardware:
MoBo: AsRock X370 Taichi (v. P5.60)
CPU: AMD Ryzen 3700x
GPU: Asus GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER

Secure boot is disabled
I've tried both with free and non-free drivers, the result is the same
I used ISO Image Write to burn the iso image on the usb stick, SHA1 is correct, and the usb works on my laptop

If you need any more info please let me know

What version of Manjaro do you want to use (18.0.4 or later) ?

The newest one on the website, so it's 18.0.4

Can you try the latest rc5 of the install media ?

You can download it here:

There is a lot of info on the forum - precisely what applies to your case is hard to say.

Please have a look

KDE rc5 version works, although there is no GUI - I can login through tty2, but on tty1 it stops on [ OK ] Started TLP system startup/shutdown. I guess there is a way to install manjaro through cli? But I'm not sure if it will work, since I cannot see the GUI

You have a actual hardware, so you need to use the kernel version 5.x.

I have seen the error " Started TLP system startup/shutdown" on some post on this forum.
You search a little there.

I can be wrong but on Destination Linux podcast I think one of the hosts mentioned some issues/lack of compatibility with Ryzen CPU, if I recall this correctly he was getting bit upset as his CPU was not supported and had to wait for AMD to fix this.

I could be wrong but that is the first thing i tough when I saw your problem.
I hope this helps
