I love Qubes and have installed it on three machines – a x220 lenovo (ver 3), a 6700K Skylake computer (custom) with 64gb (ver 4 and 4.0.4) with Intel integrated graphics, a i9-7980XE 18 core with 64gb (ver 4.0.4) with Nvidia graphics.
I tried and failed to install Qubes on two Dell XPS-13 laptops.
More importantly, I have a new i9-10900K 10 core processor machine that I just built with 128gb of memory and Intel integrated graphics, and I am not having much joy in a Qubes installation. Lubuntu works fine.
I have tried 4.0.4, two alphas from July 03 2021 and a 4.1 beta from July 11 2021. I always hit the black screen after Xen relinquishes control. I tried editing the troubleshooting option in grub with /noexitboot and /mapbs. Looking at the video of the output the 4.0.4 version clearly has some issues with the hardware. I can’t really judge the 4.1 beta as well.
My question – Is a log file for the installer that I can inspect? I have taken a video of the screen, but this is awkward and harder to share.
By the way, this is first time that I have asked for help on a computer topic since I built my original IBM PC (bought the base model with 16k ram, no floppies and added 48k ram and 2 floppies. It cost around $5k with NEC green monitor and dot matrix printer – if I had invested it in the S&P500 I would have 358K USD today).
