Maybe https://www.funtoo.org/Microcode will help with the microcode.

For SATA/PATA I would start with the basic ones:

Device Drivers/Serial ATA and Parallel ATA drivers

AHCI SATA support

ATA SFF support

ATA BMDMA support

AMD/NVidia PATA support


Device Drivers/SCSI device support

SCSI device support

SCSI disk support

SCSI CDROM support


And you can probably find the config for the debian kernel under /etc/kernel.

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.
