Mint won't start on fresh HDD (more info inside)

Postby Kakouz » Wed Dec 06, 2017 4:05 pm

I'm about to swap from Windows to Linux and I've run into a lot of problems to install the Linux Mint 18.3.

First major problem was regarding boot. Seems like my system 'halts/hangs' when I choose the version of the linux on grub. The only way I could install the OS was using the compatibility mode.

I've finished a normal install of the OS and made it to Erase the disc and create a new one. Had to install like 4-5 times cause of problems in the partitions (Fixed using gParted) and downloads stopped once in a while, but I made it work eventually.

Now I have a major problem, I can't boot my system without using the nolapic parameter. It doesn't load. If I remove the splash to see what happens it stops on something like NET PROTOCOL FAMILY or something and shutdown the computer after like 2 min or so. If needed I can provide more info about this.

If I start putting the nolapic parameter the system starts and simple become VERY slow, unusable.
After loading and booting it the first time thanks to nolapic and nomodeset, I managed to update all drivers and packages that were on the shield icon close to the clock (forgot the name of the updater) and even runned a boot-repair too. Results down below. Dunno if my machine doesn't support the OS or it's some bad config that results in this perfomance loss.

Didn't work, I've followed some steps and it said to update bios at some point, now i'm getting a kernel panic with any parameters.
