It can’t find your Qubes OS encrypted LUKS partition with specific UUID.
Not sure why. You can boot from Qubes OS installer USB in Rescue mode once again and check what UUID do you have for partitions on your Qubes external drive with this command: blkid
And see if there’s a partition with this specific UUID from your image.
Do you get a password prompt to unlock your LUKS partition when you try to boot Qubes?
Or is it just fails like this without even asking for password?
You can save rdsosreport.txt file when Qubes fails to boot and look for more specific errors there. Or upload it here if you can’t find anything relevant.
You have to enter 2 passwords: first one to decrypt your LUKS partition during boot that you have to enter only once and second one is the password for your user in dom0 that you enter in lockscreen when Qubes will finish to boot.
You can copy it to your USB drive (not sure if ntfs is supported).
You can find out which device is your USB drive with blkid.
Then assuming that your USB drive is /dev/sdc and partition number is 1:
Hi disp6252, sorry for the late reply, I’ve been trying to get the file imported, but with no results. Somehow Qubes cannot read my USB drive so I’ve reformatted it three times into different formats (exFAT, FAT, and so on). Now I’m still trying to get Qubes to read my USB
I hadn’t replied to you not because I hadn’t read your answer, but I’ve been trying to get Qubes to import the file as you described. IDK, maybe it’s just me who’s too stupid lol
Basically as you can see, my Qubes has five drives, and kindly note that I’ve typed blkid several times, whether I had USB plugged into or not. You can tell that Qubes somehow doesn’t recognize my USB which works just fine in another PC
To be honest man, I’m so exhausted. I’m feeling like I’m super dumb or Qubes is just too complicated for me. And I don’t really like distrubing others. If I could I wish I’d be able to solve these problems myself, but I can’t and I have to continuosly ask for people’s help. I really don’t like that. But really thanks for you guys’ generosity, really.
BTW the forum also just notified me that I’ve written too many replies for a new user…Maybe I’ll have to create a new account to bypass the restrictions…
Warning: By assigning a USB controller to a USB qube, it will no longer be available to dom0. This can make your system unusable if, for example, you have only one USB controller, and you are running Qubes off of a USB drive.
I guess we’re almost there? Anyway really, if you’ve more important things to do please just put this aside for now. Answer me back maybe when you’ve more time, like 3 days or 14 days later whenever you’ve more time
There seems to be a problem with ext4 filesystem on your /boot partition /dev/sdb2. I don’t know what’s wrong with it, somehow it got corrupted.
You can boot from Qubes OS installer USB and try to fix it from there: fsck -f /dev/sdb2
If it won’t work then try: e2fsck -p -f /dev/sdb2
