Computer model: Acer swift 3 [model #: SF314-51]

This model is known to have problems booting with all linux distributions. There is a solution, however. If we boot with the "acpi=off" parameter we are able to boot into and install linux. Then we can opt to use the grsecurity kernel instead and can then boot normally (without acpi=off).

I've succeeded in booting into linux with several distributions (ubuntu, gentoo, opensuse, fedora) except for Arch.

With Arch, if I boot with the "acpi=off" parameter the computer boots but fails to enable the keyboard. Because I don't have a keyboard, I cannot gather any other information concerning the problem.
This task depends upon
