I’m having a little bit a problem right now with my 12th gen (i7-1280P):
I cannot boot Linux anymore.
The M.2 SSD contains an Artix distro, with a kernel that was booting fine until recently, but now when I boot it is stuck at “starting udevd”:
I tried with a linux-lts kernel (a 5.15 kernel), same thing:
I tried to boot Ubuntu on a SDCard or a USB,
but it wouldn’t even appear in the F3 or in the F12 menu, as if it was not recognizing the devices anymore.
EDIT: it does appear in F3 and I can boot it, at the condition that the sdcard reader is the only extension card plugged-in (as I use a Live Linux on a microSD).
However, the Live Linux is then stuck around the same stage as the main SSD’s Linux.
I tried removing one, then the other RAM (each time putting the one in the slot 0), but that doesn’t make any difference.
I tried without the SSD, just with sdcard or USB, but then it behaves just like there was no storage at all.
I tried to remove the main battery and the RTC battery for 10 minutes, and it did reset my BIOS settings, but the problem was still present.
I have an old 11th gen with Windows on it, and I tried to put its Windows SSD on the 12th gen: it boots Windows.
I tried to put the 12th-gen’s Linux SSD in the 11th-gen, and it boots Linux.
I’m completely clueless to what I should do (except contact Support, which I’ll do [I just did, waiting now])…
