Thank you for working on this. I tested this on a MSI MS-7A37/B350M
MORTAR (BIOS 1.MW 11/01/2021) with a Ryzen 3 2200G, but nothing was
printed to the screen after the GRUB loading messages, so it crashed or
hung somewhere. Unfortunately, this device is used by others, and no
serial console is connected and I do not know how to capture the Linux
log with other means.


Kind regards,

Paul
