Ubuntu – Problems installing Ubuntu on an AMD motherboard with a Ryzen processor


I built a new machine using the AMD Ryzen 5 1600 CPU, an Asus Prime B350-plus motherboard and 16GB RAM. Windows runs on it, but of course I want to dual boot it with Ubuntu or Linux Mint.

The error I keep during install has to do with the squashfs unzipping. You can find the error here:

I have downloaded several versions of Ubuntu and Linux Mint and all of them have this error. I have tried it on several USB sticks and I have used both UNetbootin and Rufus to put the downloaded ISOs on the USB sticks. It always stops with this error.

The problem was the speed of the memory. Allthough it is DDR4 2400mHz the problem was solved when I clocked it down to 2133 mHz. Now the system is running and is rock solid.
