Is AMD Ryzen CPU extremely new? If so, it could take a while for sys-apps-hwids to be updated for the backward engineering. If no distro of Linux works, that's likely the reason. There could be other new hardware in a new computer that requires Linux drivers not yet available. Or maybe it's something else.
