So someone else tried " ivrs_ioapic=00:14.0 " in grub, without modifying the kernel and that made it worked, so that line might be all you need to get everything working! No custom kernel needed, no noacip, no nomodeset, nothing! Try if you are having issues.

I'm on BIOS V.7VCN44WW, I updated to this on Oct 25th using Lenovo Vantage app on Win 10 while setting up the machine after purchase. But I just checked again, it's not finding further updates.
Yes, I am seeing problems with the clock on both Win 10 and Ubuntu, and I think this showed up after the bios update, though am not sure.
Ubuntu boots up with the wrong time and then fixes it after getting a network connection. Win 10 stays with the wrong time, and its wierd - two different apps showing different time zone and time though its set to automatic. I tried force updating the time from both time server options and they are both timing out on the connection ! Something may still be a problem with the Win 10 Realtek wifi driver - that was also updated at the same time I updated the BIOS. Should have mentioned the clock problem earlier, sorry - i thought it was unrelated.
I tried your suggested grub configuration fix for the touchpad, and booted with my old kernel 4.18.0, but no luck.

Hi there, You need to run linux in nomodeset to get anything on screen because of it's apu otherwise you will get black screen. I have installed Fedora 28 and it works fine but I am stuck on full brightness because it is running on nomodeset and there is no graphics driver availabled for ryzen 5 2500U apus.

I just solved your wifi problem. Install this driver to work wifi properly. I install this driver on Fedora distro and wifi is working like charm. But the only thing is not working is brightness. Brightness is set to high. Link for wifi driver for linux distros :- https://github.com/MKD77/rtl8821ce

Install the brightness controller app --> https://github.com/LordAmit/Brightness
It works for both the notebook panel and external monitor.

I need help!
I was installing KaliLinux. I had installed it several times on my device (IP330) and the installation was fine, the installation of the OS finished but when I started installing the Grub I got an error "Error installing Dummy Grub" "This is a fatal error".
I canceled the installation and when I turned on the machine I realized that the Windows Boot Manager had disappeared, so when I turn on the machine I see the "GNU GRUB" and it does not give me options to start Windows.
The boot of windows disappeared completely.
(The trackpad works fine on Parrot OS)
How could I recover Windows startup and also install Linux?
