I am having trouble dual booting Win10 and Linux to my Lenovo 330S

I partitioned my C: drive, downloaded a fedora 28 live boot to a thumb drive, and tried to boot it. When it starts, I get a stack dump as follows:

[Firmware Bug]: AMD-Vi IOAPIC[32] not in IVRS table
Kernel Panic - not syncing: timer doesn't work through Interrupt-remapped IO-APIC
CPU:0 PID: 0 Comm: swapper/0 Not tainted 4.16.3-301.fc.28.x86_64 #1
Hardware name: LENOVO 81FB/LNVNB161216, BIOS 7WCN21WW 05/11/2018
Call Trace:

  ? clear_io_APIC_pin+0xb8/0x110

For what it is worth, I got a very similar result with a Ubuntu 29 live boot.

Can anybody point me in the right direction?

Check if you have UEFI secure boot activated, it may be blocking some kernel module require on your pc. You could disable it and try to boot as a test.

In response to aeperezt's suggestion about UEFI secure boot, I have tried this with the BIOS set for UEFI, and for legacy boot.

I you did have the same error, then try to install with compatibility mode.

When I Google this error message, the vast majority response is to use the noapic boot parameter. So you need to edit the GRUB entry (type e at the grub menu) and then find the linuxefi line, and then somewhere in that line after vmlinuz insert noapic and then either control-x or F10 to boot. If that works, you'll need to make the change permanent by editing the proper boot parameter line in /etc/default/grub and then creating a new grub configuration using sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg

I do not recommend disabling Secure Boot or using compatibility/legacy/disable UEFI mode. That is not indicated.

This did the trick.I clicked the "check" above. Is there anything else I need to do to say thanks?
