Freezing Bug on Generic PC

I’m running Lakka from the Live USB on an old Laptop. I’ve been using the laptop as a Linux test platform and Samba server for a few years now. I haven’t tried to install from the USB yet as the Live USB Lakka freezes a few seconds after it opens to the menu. I can’t ssh into the device quickly enough before it freezes.

It freezes with, or without any controllers connected, and too quickly for me to get to any roms or consoles.

As it’s an old laptop I thought the output from lscpu might be assistive for people more knowledgable than myself.

When I run lscpu on the laptop (with it’s current Ubuntu install) the output is:

May you try to provide some log ?

Also do you reproduce the issue with this testing build ?

Thank you.
