CPU: Intel (more than 10 cores, less than 20)
RAM: 128GB DDR5
Storage: M2 NVME for OS.
I am trying to install Qubes OS onto a blank Desktop that was built for installing Qubes OS by myself.
My onboard CPU does not support any non-UEFI graphics if I understand Appendix 1 and 2 correctly.
The workaround I learned from a tech support dude was make a USB stick that has an onboard system that allows you to boot onto multiple ISOs. Don’t boot into the ISO. Use this tool to boot onto the Hard Drives you already have ready to go. This allows you to boot into CSM non-UEFI operating systems.
I am open to other suggestions.
Appendix 1: In BIOS UEFI vs CSM Mode
Onboard graphics VBIOS is not supported in CSM mode. The “BIOS CSM/UEFI Mode” setting in the BIOS will be changed to “UEFI”
Appendix 2: Upon boot
There is no VBIOS support detected in this card. ‘BIOS CSM/UEFI Mode’ settings in BIOS will be changed to ‘UEFI’.
