I think you need to boot with flag 'nomodeset'

This is what I've learned in the past 10 years of using linux:

If your card is older than (current-gen - 2) then it should work just fine.

If your card is newer then it might work with the proprietary drivers which you can install once you install the full OS.

To get to the graphical interface do this on the "grub" menu when the USB boots up:

press 'e' - To edit the first option "Ubuntu" (or the distro you use)

Then move cursor in front of 'quiet plymouth rw' and have it read 'nomodeset plymouth rw' (remove quiet for a more verbose boot in case there is an error, mind you this edit is not permanent and youll have to do this every reboot)

The changes force linux to boot using 'llvm' which is basically software render, so very slow depending on your cpu. But you are able to actually use the gui to install your OS then follow the steps again after install and install your correct gpu drivers (for nvidia the package names may be confusing but for the current stable the package should just be 'nvidia' for the LTS stable then 'nvidia-#XX' which is good to use if your card is supported by that specific driver, for AMD I thought AMD was building an in-kernel driver that should support vega cards??? )

Yes when you build an installation on a device it probes the hardware and installs the drivers for the platform it is built on. It is supposed to install enough stuff to cover all possible hardware it could see but it can fail on proprietary drivers like Nvidia. Knowing this fact in advance allows one to anticipate installing the drivers needed for the intended platform. With nvidia hardware I always like to use the nomodeset kernel command line parameter in anticipation in the grub file.

Yeah, I'm not used to Linux environments with fancy stuff such as accelerated desktop graphics as I usually only run it on servers or in VM's :-)
I got the drivers sorted and have opened a thread at GitHub regarding this motherboard and UEFI version.

Yes, I'm subscribed to that issue. Looks like your dmesg dump has the cpu oops in it at the end and the developer should be able to see where the driver went wrong on your BIOS and motherboard.

Unexpected overclocking results

Hey everyone, new to the forum. Just completed my new build with a 2950x on Asus x399 and custom loop. After up and running for a week with stock bios settings, I started in on overclocking. With factory settings, my cpu temps ran around 28-57 degrees from idle to loaded with prime95. I loaded the 4GHZ asus profile and the first thing I noticed was a big drop in temps (3-27 degrees). Then I proceeded to up the multiple to 42x and even bumped the core voltage to 1.43 to see if I can get it stable, and temps still stayed low (<30).

Test scores from factory to overclocked: Realbench (146,864 --> 165,135), Cinebench (3203 --> 3565). So it nets out to 12% bump with lower temps? What is Asus doing with all of those auto settings that creates higher heat and less performance. I am missing something?

Playing with the settings, I found the answer to my question. It's the Core Performance Boost in the BIOS. As others have found, enabled it creates high voltage spikes even when not under load. My fan rpms were constantly increasing and decreasing which was pretty annoying. Disabled, my rig is cooler, quieter, and benchmarks better.

Under the tweaker's paradise disable "skew offset". This purposely reports lower temp in order to get better performance from the auto-performance tuner algorithm. Once this setting is disabled the board should report the actual temps.
