Hmm, I have *never* seen a board that wasn't supported by Linux. There
may be certain components (ethernet, video controllers, raid controller,
internal modem, bluetooth or card readers) that are only partially or
not well supported, but I have never seen a board that completely chokes
on Linux, let alone 4.

A better description of the problem would help. Maybe it's a bios issue.
