I recently bought a Herobox with the Intel Celeron J4125 processor. I prefer Linux over Windows and installed Ubuntu 22.04.1 which was running beautifully, until I started getting this error message every time I boot my computer:
[ 0.1696521] x86/cpu: SGX disabled by BIOS.
This message appears, and all I get is a blank screen. My Operating System will not load after this.
I’ve gone through all the BIOS settings and do not see how to enable SGX. I was able to bypass this problem by re-installing Ubuntu a couple of different ways, either normally, or OEM only to be back at square one.
Is there a simple fix to this I’m overlooking? Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated!
I did a ton of research trying to resolve this issue on my own. I came up a few solutions that are way out of my skill set to implement, and a few that simply did not work.
In the end I decided maybe trying a Non-Debian derived Linux Distro would work. I pulled an all nighter and got Fedora Linux 36 (Workstation Edition) installed.
This has resolved the SGX issue. I no longer see the message and the system boots into the OS quickly and without any other issues.
I’m going to continue putting this system through its paces and write an update if there are any issues.
