What about other windows system versions? The same?
Have you tried with vt-x off and vt-d on?

Hi, win10 boots until I install or update to v1809 . the issue only affect vt-d, tried with "Intel Virtualization" both On and Off and without vt-d enabled in the bios it boots fine , but i can't use virtualization software or get a working hyper-v, if I enable vt-d it won't boot no matter what I try . Also tried installing win11 with no avail, havent tried with vt-d disabled .
Booting ubuntu, in the dmesg I get lots of messages pointing to bad ACPI tables ; if needed i can post the output of dmesg here.

Yes, please. If it turns out that these messages are somehow related to virtualization, that'll help.

Thanks.
Check if disabling VT-d removes the following line from dmesg output: "DMAR:[Firmware Bug]: Your BIOS is broken; bad RMRR".

Just tried, when booting with vt-d disabled the following lines are missing in the dmesg output:

I have some opinion on why enabling VT-d resulting in these messages to show up, but do not take my words for the pure truth.
Here's how I would interpret it: VT-d requires RMRR regions and ubuntu tries to determine them by taking memory adresses specified in the firmware. And as far as I understand, the kernel has algorithms of PMRR sanity check, which detect a failure as you can see.

And then kernel corrects adresses so ubuntu can boot?!

Just imagine what if the windows update v1809 introduced something like this algorithm, but without the auto-correction feature.
I'll think about what can be done about it.

EDIT:
I looked for PMRR base in the bios image and I went through some information on the net, but nothing came of it.
I can't solve this problem.
