Live USB: systemd timeout and freeze

Hi everyone,

There is a fairly new computer I want to install arch linux on. Already turned off secure boot and activated legacy mode. After choosing the live USB in the BIOS boot menu the screen goes black for a moment and then immediately starts up arch linux without showing any grub/boot loader menu.
It gets stuck with following line:

ccp 0000:0b:00.2: sev command 0x4 timed out. disabling PSP
ccp 0000:0b:00.2: SEV: failed to get status. Error 0x0
A start job is running for Monitoring of LVM2 mirrors, snapshots etc. using dmeventd or progress polling

After some seconds the screen goes black and the system seems frozen, only the CPU fan can be heard getting more loud.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 PRO
Chipset: AMD B350 FCH
Arch ISO: 2019.05.01

Many thanks for your help.

Re: Live USB: systemd timeout and freeze


  • Arch iso 2019.06.01 results in same error

  • Update of the UEFI also didn't made any difference

  • Using different USB stick made no change

On other computers the USB stick works fine.

I am stuck and don't know how to proceed, but really want to run this computer with Arch, my favourite distribution since 11 years smile
Does anyone has any idea how to continue?
