The computer resets after Linux Lite installation


There could be several reasons your computer is resetting after installing Linux Lite. Here are a few things you can try to fix the issue:

1. Check the installation media: Ensure the installation media (USB or DVD) is not corrupted. Try installing from a different media or create a new one.

2. Check BIOS settings: Ensure that the BIOS settings are correct and set to default. Check if there are any updates available for your BIOS.

3. Check hardware compatibility: Ensure that your hardware is compatible with Linux Lite. You can check the Linux Lite website for a list of supported hardware.

4. Check for software conflicts: There might be conflicts with other software installed on your computer. Try installing Linux Lite on a fresh system without any other software.

5. Try a different version of Linux: If none of the above solutions work, try installing a different version of Linux and see if it works without any issues.

If the issue persists, seeking professional help or contacting the Linux Lite support team is recommended.

Unless someone has the same hardware it is going to be difficult to help.  To avoid duplication of effort please can you give details of the trouble shooting you've already done and the outcome.

In addition to that, maybe the output of a couple of commands

--- Code: ---inxi -Gxx
--- End code ---

--- Code: ---journalctl -b -o short-iso-precise | grep -i "error\|warn\|fail"
--- End code ---

I've installed Linux Lite 6.4 on a Lenovo Ideacentre AIO 520-24AST with an AMD A9-9420 APU.
I booted the live system from USB stick and installed the system, wiping the disk completely (there was Windows10 previously).
The installation went ok but at reboot the system resets itself at a certain point and it never gets to the desktop.
If I select "advanced options" from the boot menu and then "recovery mode" the boot process goes on; then if I just select "resume" from the Recovery Menu (even without any modification to the system) the boot process ends successfully and I get to the the desktop.

During the process I can read of an "ERROR: VGACON disables amdgpu kernel modesetting" so I suppose it's something related to the graphics interface (which is integrated in the CPU as far as I know).

I've been fiddling for a couple days trying to fix the problem but nothing worked so far.
Anybody can help?
