Hi,

I'm using Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS as well as Arch Linux with fstab and
systemd and never experienced such an issue. Neither with my old,
nor with my new mobo.

I replaced the CMOS battery of my brand new mobo, without testing if
the included battery is ok. In the past I experienced all kinds of
Voodoo, when the battery was weak, while nothing informs about a weak
battery. If I would be the OP I would clear the BIOS. This requires to
remove the battery and short circuit a jumper and then I would replace
it by a new brand-name product battery. How to clear the BIOS is
explained by the hardware manual.

I'm experiencing another issue with my new hardware. Since the OP
also does use new hardware, I recommend to contact the support of the
hardware vendors. In regards to support I have to admit, that they are
allergic to Linux. Intel support asked me, if I could test in Windows,

Regards,
Ralf
