Is somebody on this? Possibly all Surface Book users (maybe only those with the dedicated NVidia chip) can't use F27 live ISO atm. It would be helpful if we could at least work on some workaround (updated initrd with latest Intel ucode for instance).
The solution to this bug is very easy: I inserted intel_ucode.img (taken from archlinux-2017.10.01-x86_64.iso) as first initrd and rawhide booted up fine.
This bug has become obsolete as Microsoft has updated the UEFI and microcode to 0xc2 which no longer blocks system from booting.
