My AMD A12 laptop won't even boot from 18.3 dvd or usb to install, I had to install mint 18 and then upgrade to 18.3 and it runs fine. You may consider trying this.

All suggestions are welcome :D Added to the list

I was on IRC last night and some helpful folk gave me a few other routes to take also. Hopefully today is the day i get up and running.

I looked at the dmesg messages and the first two suggest a TPM problem. I think it's more than just a "disable" of TPM, you need to clear TPM. This article at Ubunut points at those two messages.

Here's an HP article on clearing TPM for HP Personal systems. The "Clear TPM Method using BIOS Setup" will hopefully work.

Might also benefit from a BIOS update. However, that's a little problematic without Windows installed.

Thank you for taking the time. Im at the stage now where im willing to throw money at the problem for skills and time that i just dont have.

Only finding a Linux competent engineer in Belfast is proving equally problematic :lol:

I'll get there...

Is it really that hard to get support for Linux out in the wild? I've heard in several places that there is a big demand for Linux technicians, perhaps this is why. It's something I'd like to be involved in, once I can get my head round NFS & other essential stuff, which is/are apparently among the test questions. Also helping with issues like yours, which I'm afraid I'm a bit lost with as don't have a modern AMD based machine to experiment with. :(
