[Bug 1250321] Re: [ASUS Sabertooth 990FX] Ubuntu 13.10/14.04 Catastrophic Random Kernel Crashes on Boot


My Raring install is using kernel 3.12. I'm planning on reformatting my
SSD later and installing a fresh copy of Ubuntu 13.10 to see if that
will work, but currently am just using a hard drive from a different PC
that I installed Ubuntu 14.04 to.

  [ASUS Sabertooth 990FX] Ubuntu 13.10/14.04 Catastrophic Random Kernel
  Crashes on Boot

Status in “efibootmgr” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  System Specs:

  ASUS Sabertooth 990FX (with the latest BIOS)
  AMD FX-8120
  AMD Radeon HD 7950
  240GB Seagate SSD (20GiB / partition)
  2TB WD HDD (/home)

  The same issues are present both with GPT UEFI and simple MBR non-UEFI

  I have installed Ubuntu 14.04 three times and each met the same fate.
  The first time you boot into the system after installing it, it works fine (maybe). However, after you reboot the system it will fail on such a grand catastrophic scale that you can't even boot into recovery mode since that will begin spamming error messages quickly as well.

  It does not output anything to logs during these errors so the only
  thing you have to go by are screenshots of the errors. In general the
  errors are all indicating issues with systemd-udevd.

  I also had similar problems in Ubuntu 13.10, plus some extra problems.
  Ubuntu 13.10 fails at installing grub and the grub-efi-amd64 and
  outputs tons of errors regarding efibootmgr.

  It isn't related to the kernel since Ubuntu 13.04 with kernel 3.12 works perfectly. It also doesn't seem to be related to firmware since I use linux-firmware-1.117 on Ubuntu 13.04 as well. It may be a bug related to efibootmgr and systemd.
