By default, the Qubes installation media only supports creating the core
sys-* qubes derived from “full” Templates.
For many users choosing Qubes OS for it’s security & privacy efforts …
Here is a simple
- Create TemplateVM + AppVM (Template for disposable) for each
- Backup existing
- Remove existing
- Salt new
sys-*qubes based on desired TemplateVM
Note about driver selection:
sys-net, be sure to replace
firmware-iwlwifi in the script with appropriate drivers for system used.
IMO, “rebuilding” a Qubes install with only
dom0 + a single functional
TemplateVM ought be within any Qubes operator’s abilities.
If unable to read/understand this basic script, DO NOT USE as, there is a good chance failure to run successfully can lead to a system which feels unusable (not actually the case) and some novice users may feel as though a reinstall is necessary.
