Ryzen 2400G Asrock x470 mobo occasionally freezing during boot

Hi there,

I just put together a new system with the Ryzen 2400G chip on an X470 Asrock motherboard. Everything is working  smoothly after about 24 hours of solid usage, except sometimes the system freezes while booting.  The behavior is very erratic. Sometimes, I get a black screen after some systemd activity, sometimes it freezes with the systemd statuses on the screen: https://imgur.com/a/jzFM6pe

I am definitely not the first person to report boot freezes with this chip, but a lot of the other discussions I have found complain that "the system is crashing before GRUB", which doesn't really apply to me because I am loading the kernel as an EFI executable.

Any help diagnosing this issue would be greatly appreciated!

Same here. Ryzen 2400G + ASrock AB350M + Samsung NVMe SDD. UEFI boot, default bios config. Kernel 4.17.5-1-ARCH.
System fails to boot half the time. After updating to 4.17 also started getting freezes at runtime.

There have been reports of Raven Ridge problems for a while now. Haven't seen a solution so far yet. sad

Exactly same setup and same problem (Ryzen 2400G X470 Asrock).
I just updated the BIOS to version 1.30 (released 5 days ago) and for the moment no issues... let's see the next days.

in my Kernel options I have amd_iommu=off mem_encrypt=off and in mkinitcpio I have MODULES=(amdgpu)

Edit: The problem persists... I even have freezing during shutdowns

Re: Ryzen 2400G Asrock x470 mobo occasionally freezing during boot

Ryzen 2400G, Asrock AB350 Gaming-ITX/ac, 4.51D beta bios, default bios configuration, systemd-boot, no special kernel options other than omitting "quiet".

My experience has been that the mainline kernels since 4.17-rc4 boot first time 9 times out of 10 and don't soft/hard lock in use.  Reboots, however, are hit and miss - shutting down, powering off, waiting 5 minutes then booting again is more likely to succeed.  The 4.17 release kernels haven't been much use to date here - I believe an amdgpu regression got introduced in 4.17.1 - with boot up invariably needing two or three attempts.

We'll get there eventually, I'm sure.

https://cdn.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel … Log-4.17.1 nothing amdgpu related as far as I can see same with 2 and 34 was supposed to have a regression fix.

Re: Ryzen 2400G Asrock x470 mobo occasionally freezing during boot

I've been reading Ryzen apu / amdgpu bug reports since I built my current box back in April and it seems that there is a whole constellation of issues.  Whatever it may be this time, kernel 4.17.5 still invariably hangs at the point where the framebuffer switches from efi vga to amdgpudrmfb.

Happily running 4.18.0-rc4-mainline...

Without boot freezes?

I'm also running linux-mainline, but still get boot freezes. Ryzen 2400G, Gigabyte GA-A320-S2H (F23d Bios).
I tried the amd-staging-drm-next branch from https://cgit.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/linux/ yesterday but no luck so far..

Just the one since I installed that kernel version 5 days ago and I'm starting my computer up once or twice a day.

Re: Ryzen 2400G Asrock x470 mobo occasionally freezing during boot

Updated BIOS to Beta 4.82 (the one with Agesa 1.0.0.2a), updated kernel to 4.18.0-rc5-mainline. Still have crashes.
According to this thread ASRock AB350M Pro4 - Freezing it could be a motherboard problem.

Will try Gigabyte or Asus.
