So yesterday I installed MX Linux standard version (4.19 kernel) dual booting with Windows 10. Unfortunately, the system was hanging every time I tried to shutdown (screen goes black, but monitor and tower on still). So after posting on their forum I tried their suggestions:
- Turning on AHCI in BIOS>SATA mode (turning off Raid).
- Downloading their latest AHS (Advanced Hardware Support ISO) which has the 5.6 kernel.
Neither of the above situations worked, so I thought maybe it was MX Linux itself and thought I'd try Manjaro instead with the 5.7.9-1 kernel.
However, I'm still having the same problem (hanging on shutdown) but I came across this post on this forum: ACPID Settings So, wanted to check that if I managed to actually follow the Arch instructions and configure the ACPID settings would it affect my ability to boot the system and/or boot into Windows?
I've also disabled; fastboot, secureboot & TPM settings. So only two suggestions I have left are changing ACPID settings and resetting/updating BIOS. However, I'm wary of doing that in case it breaks my entire system. Hence, my question about the ACPID settings and what happens to Windows if I actually manage to change them...
ETA: Forgot to say thanks in advance to those of you who post any answers/input and thanks for reading.
