Missing iommu/vt-d/amd-vi

Hello everyone

i got the same issue for that topic I7-8700 - Qubes Installation states missing IOMMU/VT-d/AMD-Vi

and according to that comment

i can not find my hardware on the hcl list

so does that mean i can not install qubes ?
will i get issue with the vm/template i install later?

thanks for your time and have a nice day :slight_smile:

Did you enable the virtualization features in the bios?

yes i did @renehoj

does anyone have comment about this?

sometimes reenable vtx vtd would work, it happen on my x230


thanks @51lieal for your suggestion i checked my hardware it does not have that option

that why i ask if it fine to proceed with installation or not and if i did what issue i could face later?

I don’t think you will be able to start any qubes, apart from dom0.

You can disable IOMMU, but that does degrade your security.

On the HCL it says for thinkpad t430 with i7-3632qm and HD 4000: iommu - no. Whereas for the same 3632qm CPU in a Dell XPS 15 it is stated: iommu - yes. As Intel 3632qm supports VT-d, is it because of the mainboard of the t430 that it does not support iommu? The same board with other intel CPUs actually supports iommu.
Edit: It is because there are two versions of the 3632qm CPU. The socketed version does NOT support VT-d, only the soldered one. This leads me to a further question: Why did intel remove VT-d from the socketed version of their best performing 35W cpu?
