Custom Linux kernels must be built with initramfs support enabled (Kconfig
option CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD=y), as well as early microcode support

$ grep CONFIG_MICROCODE_INTEL_EARLY /boot/config-4.19.*

I try with F8 in

as I have say in another post in this thread: here there are the same files of the intel-microcode package


PS: I don't want to criticize Debian (I'm a Debian user fun) nor who reply on the list (this people help other to understand what the don't know)
