Per title getting "[12.512042] i2c_designware i2c_designware.2: controller timed out" when booting from Linux Mint 19v2 Cinnamon (Compatibility Mode) from GRUB from flash drive with the intent of installing. Currently running the latest BIOS (v48) and have Secure Boot disabled...not sure what I'm missing here. Get an eternally blinking cursor when using the normal/non-compatibility mode option. Compatibility mode screenshot attached.
