Helle, i am very new to all this with linux, though i did try Ubuntu out some time back, and now seems to be a decent time to go for it again. Though i have a problem with intalling both ubuntu and arch.

I currently want to install Arch Linux, just becuase i like a challenge, but i did also try installing Ubuntu after the error that occured when i tried to boot into the finished installation of Arch, without anything else than just the basics installed, and efter that i wanted to install KDE Plasma 5.

Though i ran into some error :
[FIRMWARE BUG] TCS_DEADLINE disabled due to Errata; please update microcode to version: 0x22
Coulnd’t get size: 0x800000000000000e
Modsign: Coundn’t get UEFI db list
Coulnd’t get size: 0x800000000000000e

And first of all, when i installed Arch, i got this error, where as near the top a bunch of multi colour though most green vertical lines appeard all over in a line from left to right. Like some sort of display configuration error of some sort.
Then i tried installing ubuntu, and before i got to the installation, it gives the same error code, and i’m not able to boot.
Where i’m at right now is, when i get home i will try to install intel-ucode package into arch : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/microcode
and see where that get’s me, would though love to get some thoughts or ideas of what could be done.

CPU: i5-4690
Motherboard: Msi gaming 5
SSD: Samsung 840 Evo 250G

If any other information needed, just ask, but i’m limited to not having current acces to the computer, but it seems as though it’s not the linux distros where the problem lies, it seems to be my computer, and i don’t think i’ve ever installed linux on it before, though i have with my old 2011 laptop.

Thank you beforehand :slight_smile:
