Problems with an Acer Swift 3 SF314-41


I've just bought an Acer Swift 3 SF314-41-R2XF ( running on a AMD Ryzen 5 3500U cpu and an AMD Radeon Vega 8.
Unfortunately, I have problems running Linux on it. Most of the distributions I've tried until now either freeze during boot, or freeze a few seconds after getting to the desktop screen.

Anyone can help me trying to fix this?

I have seen you asked for help on Ubuntu forums too, but you need to read this:

Even tho is not quite the same model, it might work. In conclusion, you have to use acpi=noirq as kernel boot parameter for live media install, and also after you install the system successfully and boot from it.
My suggestion is to use a live media install that includes the 5.2 kernel: XFCE , KDE , Gnome and then install the 5.3 kernel.
