Summary0007713: Kali bare metal installations crash Alienware BIOS
Descriptionupon installing Kali Linux as the sole boot/ OS on my new Alienware m15 AMD i7, the BIOS completely crashes as soon as it reboots, always fronting the same error message:
"6-0:1.0: config failed, hub doesn't have any ports! (err -19)".
Trying to boot into recovery mode doesn't work either as that too completely crashes and freezes up.

Steps To ReproduceInstall latest or previous versions of Kali bare metal image on an Alienware AMD i7.
Eject installation media and reboot.
Additional InformationIt cannot be the Bare Metal version, as I tried older ones as well. (2021.2)
The settings one chooses during in the installation should not have an effect either, as I tried multiple different configurations and they always led to this error message.
I believe it has something to do with the Dell Alienware Command Center somehow corrupting the BIOS but cannot say for sure.


There are no notes attached to this issue.
