Fedora 30 Live USB booting fails "No irq handler for vector"

Hello, I am a linux newbie trying out Fedora-30 workstation from the live USB from a Toshiba Satellite C855D/Portable PC, BIOS 6.20 01/09/2013 with 4gb of RAM. The OS on my hard disk is Windows 8,1

Immediately following GRUB I get an error message “[ 0.002035] do_IRQ: 1.55 No irq handler for vector”

I have tried modifying:

getparams ‘Start Fedora-Workstation-Live 30’
(tab) linuxefi /images/vmlinuz root=live:CDLABEL=Fedora-WS-Live-30-1-2 rd.live.image quiet
(tab) linuxdefi /images/pxeboot/initrd.img

so that it reads:

getparams ‘Start Fedora-Workstation-Live 30’
(tab) linuxefi /images/vmlinuz root=live:CDLABEL=Fedora-WS-Live-30-1-2 rd.live.image quiet pci=nomsi,noaer
(tab) linuxdefi /images/pxeboot/initrd.img

as recommended by another forum.

It gives me the same error but the error message number changes to 0.001897

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I am really looking forward to trying out Fedora but seem to be stuck for now.

Sorry fixed :slight_smile: The fix turned out to be really simple.

And… What is the fix? :slight_smile:
You should think to other people that googling for the same error land on this post: “wow, my same problem”. Solution: solved. “Wtf, in what way?” It could be frustrating.
So it is very appreciated if someone that finds the solution to his problem by himself, will also post the solution. :wink:
Thanks.

It’s too easy, it won’t be satisfying for people trying to solve this problem. This will give you the hint you need to realize what you have to do:

I am your children.
I bear your name.
I am your greatest deeds.
Everybody wants to have me.
Most are disappointed by me.
No one will ever witness me with their own eyes.
What am I?

Good luck!
