Greetings. I’m new to Qubes as I just recently heard about this OS. Super excited to get it going. I went out and purchased a laptop to run Qubes on however I’m not able to get it installed.
I purchased an HP Spectre x360 (15-eb1043dx) as I saw others have had success with the x360. However I am not having success. I’m booting the installer from an 8GB flash drive and can see that the booting process does start, however once it gets to XEN the screens slowly clears (approx 2 seconds clearing from top to bottom) and display stays blank. I can see activity on the flash drive for 20 to 30 seconds after the screen clears and the computer does not appear to be locked up as I can press CTRL+ALT+DEL and the computer reboots.
I suspect this is a display issue, however totally guessing. Below is the last thing I see on the screen before it clears and stays blank.
(XEN) Scrubbing Free RAM on 1 nodes using 4 CPUs
(XEN) Std. Loglevel: Errors and warnings
(XEN) Guest Loglevel: Nothing (Rate-limited: Errors and warnings)
(XEN) Xen is relinquishing VGA console.
I’ve tried quite a few of the suggestions I found in troubleshooting and none of them fixed this and some of them made things worse.
Would be grateful for any suggestions of things to try.
