gigabyte GA-970A-DS3p wont install or run linux

Before i go into detail has anyone else had this problem.It loads window 10 and 7 perfectly the computer runs fine (the cpu is fx8370) and asus geforce gt 710)
When i try to install any linux during boot it says all the usbs cannot be read and something about the kernel. When i waited for 3 hours the login appeared . But i then have no mouse or keyboard so i cannot login. Ive tried unbuntu debian arch centos all to some degree the same out come. Yet put in macos win 10 win 7 it is perfect. And before any one says just use windows i dont want to use windows im a 4 month convert to linux and was enjoying it. I am typing this message on a win os as i have no othyer choice. Any assisstance would be appreciated.

If you can get into your BIOS setup, see if there is a setting for IOMMU, and change it and re-try.

An I/O Memory Management Unit (IOMMU) is a hardware component that provides two main functions: I/O Translation and Device Isolation. ● The IOMMU translates memory addresses presented by devices from “I/O space” to “machine space” to allow a particular device to access physical memory potentially out of its range.
