Hello, Qubes OS 4.1 rc1 manages to boot on my MSI GF66. It is a 11th Gen i5 with integrated intel and discrete nvidia graphics. The only issue is there is no sound. I have already tried updating to the latest kernel, installing alsa-sof, alsa-ucm, and editing modeprobe.d.
I have already ran the command you mentioned. I can’t post my lspci here because I am having trouble copying and pasting from dom0 and I don’t know where to save screenshots. I am 99% sure my sound card is intel.

Pretty much dom0. sys-gui is essentially “showing” you dom0 right now. That’s kind of how it works in a nutshell. (This is purely for gist of understanding, and the full Qubes OS documentation will give you a much better [and more accurate] understanding).
If you’re going to be doing GPU passthrough (You have a gaming laptop, I’m assuming you’re going to be taking the GA107M for a spin), probably a good idea to install the drivers in whatever VM you’d be passing it through to.
I mean, you could try passing through your discrete GPU into a Windows HVM or a GNU/Linux HVM, and see what happens, but be prepared for it not to work…
(probably a good idea to make sure that whatever VM you’re passing it through to isn’t set to start automatically on boot, just in case you lose your display )
There will definitely be a way, depending on how much you’re willing to get your hands dirty, but sadly, I don’t have an answer…
Gaming isn’t exactly high up on priorities of the use cases of Qubes OS…(yet…)
Sorry I couldn’t help you any further. But at least you’ve got your sound working!
Be careful dual booting. Security concerns aside (yes, they’re important, but not my main point), Windows does seem to like to annihilate GRUB without telling anyone, including when it’s on a completely separate drive.
