I bought a Clevo NH55HPQ halfway across the world as the country I live in doesn’t have Clevo’s (and those windows-laptops with similar hardware specs are double the price).
Bought laptop overseas, added RAM and SSD’s locally.

The shop I bought this laptop from told me this laptop is not compatible with Qubes OS (due to older kernel), so I chose to install Qubes R4.1rc2
I had some issues, like I could not get the installer to use over-provisioning of the SSD’s, so I used a xubuntu live USB to install LVM over LUKS, creating the pools and LV’s Qubes created, but allowing only 90% of the SSD’s being used, leaving 10% on each disk for over-provisioning. Of course all pools and LV’s are thinly-provisioned.
I was not so familiar with LVM when I started, so there may be better ways (maybe decreasing the pool from 100% to 90% after the install?). Anyway, I learned a lot in the process.
WiFi is still not working in QubesOS (it works in xubuntu LiveUSB*). Low priority now.
Since this laptop does not have hardware switches I may opt for a wired connection to a Raspberry Pi, that provides WiFi, that way I can run the first firewall and first VPN on the raspberry pi (with blackarch, with honey-pot). I have never used ArchLinux before, so on long term todo list for now. ((-: I’m soo looking forward to Qubes Air!!! ;-))
*) although when installing xubuntu in another LV next to dom0 (as dual-boot, not inside Qubes), wifi doesn’t work in xubuntu out of the box either.
For now my /boot partition is not encrypted yet (that my explain the: tpm: ‘unknown’… maybe… not sure). Will rerun
qubes-hcl-report once /boot is encrypted (but don’t hold your breath!)
Also on my todo-list, once I learn LVM a bit more… is use some kind of software-RAID so dom0 runs on every SSD for maximum redundancy: RAID0 over 3 SSD’s of different r/w speed => SSD1 - write-mostly(SSD2 - write-mostly(SSD3))
Have been using Qubes on this laptop now for 3 days… apart from the above, the rest seems to be working fine.
I hope this post will be useful to someone.
If you let me know how I can open the .cpio.gz file and delete the serial numbers, then I’ll add it too.
A point of attention within an infinite state of consciousness having an experience.
P.S. And a huge THANK YOU! to everyone involved creating this AWESOME OS!!!
