    ZENITH II EXTREME Linux & Bios bug

    Hi, it seems there is many issue with bios and hardware support. The purpose of this thread is to get some love from ASUS for their linux user and to help each other with supporting the Zenith II Extreme motherboard on linux.

    At this time, using bios 0807 and kernel 5.5.2 we have the following issues.

    Part I - Bugged bios ACPI on I2C devices.
    On kernel start, we get a bunch of error :
    Code:
    févr. 16 15:20:54 panzer kernel: ACPI BIOS Error (bug): Failure creating named object [\_SB.I2CA.WT1A], AE_ALREADY_EXISTS (20191018/dswload2-323)

    Part II - Unsupported Audio (PCI).
    On boot we get
    Code:
    kernel: snd_hda_intel 0000:23:00.4: no codecs found!
    Which is
    Code:
    # lspci -vvkPPnn -s 23:00.4
    20:08.1/23:00.4 Audio device [0403]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] Starship/Matisse HD Audio Controller [1022:1487]
      Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Starship/Matisse HD Audio Controller [1043:874f]
    It seems to be specific to the asus subsystem.
    I made a bug report to kernel developer at https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=206543

    Part III - Unsupported Audio (USB).
    Strange issue on boot
    Code:
    kernel: usb 9-5: cannot get ctl value: req = 0x83, wValue = 0xc00, wIndex = 0x1300, type = 4
    kernel: usb 9-5: 19:0: cannot get min/max values for control 12 (id 19)
    Once again, it lead to some asus specific audio device :
    Code:

    Part IV. XHCI Bug (linked to ACPI)
    Another error in kernel :
    Code:
    ACPI BIOS Error (bug): AE_AML_PACKAGE_LIMIT, Index (0x000000007) is beyond end of object (length 0x6) (20191018/exoparg2-393)
    ACPI Error: Aborting method \_SB.S0D2.D2A0.BYUP.BYD8.XHC1.RHUB.PRT6._PLD due to previous error (AE_AML_PACKAGE_LIMIT) (20191018/psparse-529)
    Part V. Sensor (with a solution)
    By default, sensors are not seen. (Probably due I2C/ACPI bugs).
    But we can get some value.

    Adding
    Code:
    acpi_enforce_resources=lax
    to kernel boot parameters allow to load
    Code:
    nct6775
    module which provide some vaues :
    Code:

    Hi,

    I'm surprised that no one have replied yet.

    Does that mean that no one is using Linux with Asus Zenith II Extreme?

    Or maybe, it's only me who's having this problem?

    I have the same problem as this post in the link below.
    https://askubuntu.com/questions/1204...a5d1092ab0a730

    Any help would be very appreciated. As for now, I'm not able to run any other OS, just Windows.
