I’m having some trouble getting my FW to work.
I got the DIY version, assembled it and installed Ubuntu 22.04.03-MATE on it. After rebooting I got the login screen, was able to move the cursor for a few seconds until everything froze and the screen went black. This was reproducible for the next reboots, as well. At this point I was not able to switch to another TTY.
As I was not sure if the MATE environment would introduce some issues, I wanted to install the normal Ubuntu 22.04.03 on it. As this whole behaviour seemed familiar, I also took the SSD out and screwed it back in again.
When I wanted to install Ubuntu, I noticed that the SSD could not be found anymore. So I removed and reinserted the SSD again and tried the installation again, with the same result.
The SSD is also not visible in BIOS anymore. Just as a test I unplugged the battery and waited for a few minutes before plugging it in again, but that didn’t change anything.
Did I screw up here or did I get a faulty SSD? Or maybe something completely different?
Just some stats so you know what I’m working with:
- AMD Ryzen™ 7 7840U
- DDR5-5600 - 32GB (2 x 16GB)
- WD_BLACK™ SN850X NVMe™- M.2 2280 - 1TB
- BIOS version: 3.02
I hope someone has an idea, I really want to start using this laptop.
