I install Tails successfully but every while it get stuck (must restart holding power button) or it is restarting by itself. I running it on my laptop. Is it problem with drivers or system ?

root@amnesia:/home/amnesia# uname -a Linux amnesia 4.6.0-0.bpo.1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.6.4-1~bpo8+1 (2016-08-11) x86_64 GNU/Linux root@amnesia:/home/amnesia#

    Possibly either, have you tried the new 2.6 update? It has a much newer kernel version and should better support more devices. – cacahuatl Sep 21 '16 at 16:15
  • I tried 2.6 but still the same. I don't know what can fix it!? Is it possible to install some driver installer on Tails. – Ktitor Sep 25 '16 at 13:05

    @canonizingironize He is running a very recent kernel version, so it's hardly an issue. As far as I see on dmesg some drivers have not initialized properly + SATA is working in legacy compatibility PATA mode, and it's a known troublemaker – Alexey Vesnin Oct 2 '16 at 1:10

    Because of the fact that my answer was deleted - I'm writing here. I think I've found a problem: your BIOS settings and drivers are not working together. Have you tried to switch to AHCI and reinstall Tails? It should help you, as far as I got your dmesg output. – Alexey Vesnin Oct 2 '16 at 1:08
  • Finally I did it!!! Switched to ACHI than REINSTALL Tails!!! – Ktitor Oct 8 '16 at 0:34
  • does your dmesg contains any ACPI-related warnings now? – Alexey Vesnin Oct 8 '16 at 13:17
