Intel NUC J3455 Linux Kernel freeze slowness 4.4.98 errors

It looks like this has something to do with APIC but I am not sure.  I have similar CPUs with a different MB and BIOS that work fine on the same type of kernel.  A lot of time the issue is because of the C-step setting in the BIOS.

The same thing happened on the 2.6 kernel with Centos 6 but this is a homebrew 4.4 kernel so I am not sure why it is happening when even Centos 7 (3.2) kernel works OK.

Solution - It comes down to the BIOS settings:

*The most critical part is this:

Boot:

OS Selection "Linux" (now note this is weird but even if you are booting without UEFI this setting applies still).

If you don't choose Linux as your OS everything runs snail slow.

Security:

Disable "Execute Disable Bit"

Disable "Intel Platform Trust"

Power:

Disable "Enhanced Intel Speedstep Technology"

Disable "OS ACPI C2 Report"

You may also get errors like these:

 

[  299.955483] mce: [Hardware Error]: Machine check events logged

 

Other symptoms are that everything seems to run very slow such as basic keyboard input there is a lot of lag even when opening top or waiting for the output of dmesg etc..When typing it basically feels like you are on a dialup modem connecting to a server on the other side of the world with packet loss or that is saturated.
