Everything seems to be working correctly, but during the loading process of Manjaro Linux I see hardware errors shown on below picture (I have disabled splash screen).

Currently I use kernel 4.13.11-1.

Update: Errors do not show up when using kernel 4.9.61-3.

What is the cause of those errors and how can I get rid of them?

    The 'mce' in those lines stands for 'machine check exception' and according to this Wikipedia article, it sounds like it might be fairly serious.

    Does that article help? Errors not showing up with the other kernel maybe because of (1) no mce reporting in older kernel, or (2) different code through boot doesn't cause that particular problem to happen.

    @Luke Basically the linux kernel can do microcode updates to the processor if its included before the initrd. The error you see could be the kernel trying to use the CPU in a way only meant for an updated microcode. Actually both AMD and Intel cpus do this. But AMD works automatically whereas intel is loaded manually. So I'll assume if thats it you must have an intel.

    @Luke it happens automatically most of the time thats why.

    @Luke wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Microcode Try following that and you can rule it out at least. It can't really hurt much if its not it.
