Just got a new Acer Swift 3 (SF314-41) laptop without OS installed. Found out that any Linux distro installation is a problem. When I try to boot from USB stick I get next errors (tried on Ubuntu, Linux mint, manjaro):
[0.998986] iommu ivhd0: AMD-Vi: Event logged [PAGE_TAB_HARDWARE_ERROR device
...like 20 same errors with different timestamps

[20.655271] usb usb1-port4: couldn't allocate usb_device

After a few seconds it restarts with appropriate OS logo and shows next errors:
stdin: invalid argument
...like 50 same errors...
Unable to find a medium container a live system
Attempt interactive netboot from a URL ?

To create a bootable USB stick, I used Rufus with the next settings: partition scheme GPT (tried MBR too), mode: ISO (tried DD too). Secure boot is disabled. Tried different USB sticks (2.0 / 3.0). Windows 10 installation (created with media tool) loads successfully, however I didn't try to fully install it.
