When trying to boot the latest live boot from Debian with the 4.17 kernel, the boot fails and kicks me to an initramfs shell. I cannot find the USB device that I am trying to boot from in
/dev, which matches the messages I'm seeing.
Since it's on another system with no OS, I can't copy the whole log, but I'm seeing messages like these:
[ 7.13] xhci_hcd 0000:00:14.0 Timeout while waiting for setup device command [12.51] xhci_hcd 0000:00:14.0 Timeout while waiting for setup device command [12.72] usb 2-1: device not accepting address 2, error -62
There are more until 26 seconds, at one point it tries to power cycle a usb port, it finds a USB bluetooth radio... but it doesn't seem to recognize the USB device/port that the USB stick is in.
What could I do to resolve this? Ubuntu seems to work, but I would much prefer to install Debian on my system.
Edit: by happenstance I noticed that when replugging the USB device,
/dev/sdb appears. I retried booting and as soon as I saw it was starting to stall (before 7 seconds ticked by), I replugged the USB stick. It now boots to a shell. Still not the graphical environment I should get, so something is still wrong. Not sure how to get this working.
