After installation, the system does not boot

Hi, I used to use Qubes a lot on my old laptop, now that I have a better computer I would very much like to resume using Qubes. About 2 months ago I tried to install Qubes on my new machine, but unfortunately I have a problem with the installation, namely after performing the installation using the installation wizard, my system does not boot and it seems that it actually does not exist at all (possibly some error popped up after booting the pc, but I don’t remember) and immediately the bios opened up, now I don’t remember exactly because it was a long time ago, but it looked like the system couldn’t install or it installed and couldn’t boot up because it wasn’t detected and the BIOS opened up.
Today I would like to try installing Qubes again and I have a question if you know what could help me?

My PC specs:
GPU: MSI Ventus 2x OC Edition Geforce RTX 3060 12GB gddr6 192-bit
CPU: Intel(R) Core™ i9-10900K CPU @ 3.70GHz
(It also has an integrated intel graphics card, so I can use it if my dedicated card is problematic)

Motherboard: MSI B560-A PRO

Sorry for being a noob. Love u all <3
Best regards!!!

“I got some error, dunno what it was… can you help?”

Not really, without a lot more specifics.

Try disabling hyperthreading in your firmware configuration utility before you install. I’ve seen some systems (mostly AMD, admittedly…) that don’t handle what Xen does with disabling hyperthreaded cores properly, and it led to weird issues with the NVMe drive.

You’ll probably want to pull the nVidia cards for Qubes use - integrated is more reliable, and the nVidia GPUs are simply wasting power, though they should work - I think I’ve got a 1080Ti in one of my systems and it works, just doesn’t do anything meaningful beyond export a framebuffer to the display.
