【Dom0】error ‘systemctl’,’start’,’qubes-vm@sys-usb.service’ failed:stdout


I’m trying to install Qubes and running into this error while trying to install the default VM.

See photo here:

I’m unable to interact with my keyboard or mouse after this error. I tried rebooting, and it takes me straight to the “initial setup” screen. Again, unable to interact with keyboard or mouse.

I tried reinstalling and facing the same error again.

OS: Qubes release 4.2.0-rc3


Your USB controller probably need the option no-strict-reset=true.

Try installing Qubes OS without the usb qube.
Once you’ve installed and booted your system, manually create the usb qube and add the no-strict-reset option to your controller.
