Hi, for those who still suffers from this issue, it was a regression issue caused by commit f723dd269d07 "x86/timer: Skip PIT initialization on modern chipsets"), which was backported to 4.15.0-71 in bug 1851216 as a fix for some other platforms. So, please try latest mainline kernel as possible as there might be yet another fix to this regression, then we may finally cherry-pick it back to 4.15 and fix hardware platforms of either group. As far as we know, this issue was still reproducible on v5.5-rc5, so you may want to try something newer than that directly.

On boot, all I see is the purple screen with: Loading Linux 4.15.0-72-generic ... Loading initial ramdisk ... and nothing happens. Just sits there. I've waited about 5-10 minutes on occasion but to no avail. I've checked a number of logs in /var/log but not found anything. If I go into the advanced options and select kernel 4.15.0-70-generic, the computer boots normally.
