I have a good laptop that meets well the hardware requirements, but still I can’t install qubes os on it. The installation screen shows up initially but is stuck early on with never ending timeout messages.
I don’t have Nvidia or any other discrete GPU. I have full hardware virtualization support enabled in BIOS. Turned off secure boot, and played around with tuning off hyper-threading and other UEFI BIOS settings. No legacy boot support to try that out. I saw a few IO messages about the NVMe, maybe the drive is not supported.
I want to buy a second hand laptop, to try out Qubes. I don’t want waste money though, with Qubes not installing/working on the new one also. Any suggestion for a cheap laptop for Qubes 4.1 , that can be upgraded to 64 GB RAM?
The HCL mentions few expensive laptop with small amount of RAM. Why are these even mentioned? They don’t have enough RAM for few VMs (OK, they support Coreboot, but useless without min 16GB RAM). There is a community HCL, but it’s mostly for old versions of Qubes.
What’s is the best laptop for the latest version of Qubes in 2023?
