AMD GPIO Issue Preventing Linux Installation

I have been attempting to install Linux Mint 18.3 onto my laptop for some time now, but each time I have run into the same error message. I am able to get through the initial boot to the loading menu to boot the kernel, but then I run into my issue. This is what I get:

 

amd_gpio AMD0030:00 Failed to get gpio IRQ

 

I have installed Ubuntu and other Linux distro's onto other laptops with AMD processors and graphics before with no issue. I have attempted to try using other distro's on this laptop, but I have the same issue with them.

 

System Specs (if it helps):

Model: HP Envy x360 Convertible 15m-bq0xx

Processor: AMD FX-9800P

Graphics: Radeon R7

BIOS Mode: UEFI

For the IRQ, I looked it up. It has IRQ7 Shared between the AMD GPIO Controller and the Synaptic SMBus Driver

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
