Elitebook 745 G5 (Ryzen 5): Linux does not boot

[ Bearbeitet ]
Produktname: 5CG8360S8X
Betriebssystem: Linux

Dear all,


recently I bought an Elitebook 745 G5 with a Ryzen 5 2500U (Serial Nr. [entfernt]) and FreeDOS configuration, but unfortunately I can not get this Laptop to boot any contemporary Linux distribution. I modified the Laptop and replaced the 250 GB SSD with a 500 GB Samsung 970 EVO, but I would assume that this is not the cause of the problem, since other people already reported similar problems like the ones I am facing:

So basically, I can only install and boot Debian 9.5 stable, which contains an outdated Linux kernel which does not recognize the Vega graphics chip (and other components).  Debian testing (Buster release) with a newer kernel would alleviate the problem, but as soon as I navigate through its installer's menu the process freezes. Same thing applies to the installer of Manjaro Linux, which does not even boot into its live system.

I tried to circumvent the problem by the proposed downgrading fix (from 01.03.01 Rev.A down to 01.00.04 Rev.A), but I still end up with frozen installer menues. I played around with the Secure Boot and UEFI options, which would not help either (disabling Secure Boot and enabling UEFI). Basically I used the same Bios settings (factory default) to install Debian 9.5 and the other distributions - Debian 9.5 worked and the others did not.


It would be nice to provide a firmware update, which fixes these issues (in a more reproducible way, since 1 out of 10 successful boots as stated by the previous fix is not acceptable). Obviously it is a widespread problem, which in my case prevents me from using the Laptop in any productive way. Can you please inform me (and the others) about any intended upcoming upgrades, else I would see myself urged to return the device since it is not usable. Frankly speaking, I think the layout of the Laptop is well considered and it would be a pity to actually be forced to return the device.


Thank you for your assistance and best regards!
