  Doesn't work as expected
What works:

Live USB works.

What doesn't work:

You have to change the startup config – otherwise you will not be able to boot.

What was done to make it work:

Edit file /etc/default/grub, find line "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=", edit it to look like:
add this line: ... quiet splash ivrs_ioapic[32]=00:14.0 ivrs_ioapic[33]=00:00.1 spec_store_bypass_disable=seccomp

terminal: update-grub

Additional notes:

Would not recommend the hassle.
