There is an unsolved problem of another MX150 laptop that takes 10 minutes to boot in Windows.
There is a bug report filed against the ASUS Zenbook here:
- intel-microcode on ASUS makes kernel stuck during loading initramfs on bionic-updates, bionic-security
Comment #47 seems to have the solution:
For anyone having a similar problem, try booting with microcode
updates off: add
dis_ucode_ldrto the kernel command line (from GRUB
if you cannot boot)
To do this use:
sudo -H gedit /etc/default/grub
Find the line containing
quiet splash and make it read
quiet splash dis_ucode_ldr whilst keeping everything else on the line the same.
Save the file and type:
sudo update-grub reboot
Hopefully it all works fine now. If this is your situation make sure to subscribe to the bug report.
