Cant install Arch Linux 2017.08.01 release. ASUS X553 LAPTOP

When trying to launch from USB Arch hangs on message "triggering uevents".

CPU: Intel Pentium CPU N3540 (Intel BYT-M)
MOTHERBOARD:  X553MA

PCI DEVICES:
    Atom processor Z36XXX/Z37XXX Series SoC (Host bridge)
    Atom processor Z36XXX/Z37XXX Series Grap (VGA compatible controller)
    Atom processor 3800 (SATA controller)
    Atom processor Z36XXX/Z37XXX (Encryption controller)
    Atom processor Z36XXX/Z37XXX (Audio device)
    Atom processor 3800 (PCI bridge)... Got tired while rewriting from display.

When trying to boot with option "loglevel=7"
...
r8169 Gigabit Ethernet driver 2.3LK-NAPI loaded
r8169 0000:03:00.2: cant disable ASPM; OS doesn't have ASPM control  (This is last message I see before hangs).

I tried to use "pcie_aspm=force/off" - no result. It hangs on the message:
r8169 Gigabit Ethernet driver 2.3LK-NAPI loaded

PS:  The earlier release of Arch Linux (2016.10.01) i installed without problems some time before.
PS2: USB flash storage was formated in FAT32. The ISO file was written with dd util.

Booting with the kenrel option "pcie_aspm=force" should have allowed you to boot the iso. Do you have an older iso you could install from?

The "pcie_aspm=force" doesn't resolve this. However, I discovered another error: snd_hda_intel 0000:00:1f.3: failed to add i915 component master (-19).

Yes, I still have older image. After I got that I nothing can do to this current release, I tried to boot it. And it booted without issues.  I assuming that there is something problematic with current kernel version, kind of firmware or drivers issue. I was using Arch Linux for some time (first time installed image - 2016.10.01 version).  One day after full system upgrade,  I booted laptop, as usually  it was showing some startup logs but then I saw my laptop completely hangs with black screen (I remember, the display was showing nothing, not even black screen). For some reason I decided to not bother myself about what exactly happened there. And now I trying to reinstall it.

Re: Cant install Arch Linux 2017.08.01 release. ASUS X553 LAPTOP

Ok. So I came up with conclusion it is really kernel issue. I booted live linux kernel 4.7.5 version from ISO (2016.10.1) and then installed base system with kernel version 4.12.X. And unfortunately I saw the same sad picture. It hangs on starting  udev Kernel Device  Manager.

itTCO_wdt: Intel TCO WatchDog Timer Driver v1.11
itTCO_wdt: Found a Bay Trail SoC TCO TCO device (Version=3, TCOBASE=0x0460)

    So, how I can install Arch Linux with older version of kernel, or where I can write about my issue?

Install linux-lts & run mkinitcpio -p linux-lts .
Then configure the boot loader to give you a choice between linux-lts and latest linux.

That way you have an uptodate older kernel and can still try latest kernel for troubleshooting.

Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Well, I tried several things and this are the results:

1.- The latest working release from Arch is the 2017.05.01:
https://www.archlinux.org/releng/releases/2017.05.01/
with the 4.10.13 kernel. Newer releases won't boot.

2.- It's definitely a driver issue, because 4.14 kernels from OpenSUSE and Ubuntu work just fine, but those from Arch and Solus won't boot. I compiled the kernel with an Ubuntu config file on Arch and it boots all right.

Version 4.15.2 of the kernel works, the problem was a i915 bug but it's fixed now.
