Oh, my God, just now I seem to have found the problem.

I have replaced the rear USB port, and there seems to be no problem now.

You probably have an error on your boot medium. Re-burn/image the medium or change to something else.

Thank you for your suggestion. I have tried your suggestion.

Replaced the boot USB drive.

Redownloaded the ISO image.

Re-burn the mirror image.

But the breakdown is still there

Do a memory diagnostic. You may have a bad DIMM.

A bad USB port is very uncommon, but if that did the trick then good news.

Same thing happened to me. Different USB port did the trick! Thanks for posting!

So I had a related problem which I was able to solve.

My system was a pretty recent Ryzen 3600 and it would get this when trying to install or boot from the USB sticks.

A couple of steps seemed to help, but I haven't gone back to falsify the results since everything just works:

1) Disabled CSM (Compatibility Support Mode) in the UEFI settings

2) Ensured the machine booted from the UEFI bootloader on the USB stick. For some reason the BIOS wanted to boot from "VMWare USB FDMAP" or something, but there were two additional boot entries that were prefixed with "UEFI: " and that worked like a charm.

I'm not sure which of the two ultimately solved it for me since I changed two things in the same change cycle, but it's working like a champ now.
