Asus B250 Mining Expert - watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck



Has anyone using the Asus B250 Mining Expert board with an Intel i5 or Celeron CPU (I’ve tried both) gotten this error?

I get it about half the time on boot and every time on reboot. For reboots I have to do a hard power off or it just sits there forever.

I’m running HiveOS v0.5-53 and am about to try downgrading to a version that I’m running on my other rigs with the same CPU with no problems. They are running the MSI H270-A Pro motherboard, though.

I highly suspect it’s not HiveOS, but the B250 board, but I just want to do my due diligence to narrow the problem down.


The best thing I can find on this is here.


Did you find the culprit? I’m have the same issue.
