I have installed ubuntu server on an HP G7 machine which is brand new.
Here is a picture of the frozen screen
For some reason when I rebooted from my office it got stuck at the screen above, sometimes its a black screen.
When that problem occurs I cannot do anything such as ping or ssh to it. I have to make a hard reset .
I have made a lot of researches and a few solutions suggest to pass the following parameters to the kernel :
warm = Don’t set the cold reboot flag cold = Set the cold reboot flag bios = Reboot by jumping through the BIOS (only for X86_32) smp = Reboot by executing reset on BSP or other CPU (only for X86_32) triple = Force a triple fault (init) kbd = Use the keyboard controller. cold reset (default) acpi = Use the RESET_REG in the FADT efi = Use efi reset_system runtime service pci = Use the so-called “PCI reset register”, CF9 force = Avoid anything that could hang.
None of them fixed my issue, the server freezes from time to time. It is very strange please advice.
