I am trying to install Qubes OS on a new computer (elitebook 845 g9) with AMD Ryzen 7 pro 6850U.
After disabling secure-boot, and getting to boot the USB drive the installer gets stuck on Reached target basic.target - Basic System.
Booting with Debugging shows after this:
nvme nvme0: I/O 4 QID 0 timeout, completion polled
I’m not very experienced in linux systems, even though I’ve been using Qubes for a year now.
That’s why I don’t understand everything I’ve found about my problem so far. Ryzen 7000 serie - This post is especially interesting, but I doesn´t understand so much. The point is that the new hardware is not yet fully supported.
Especially this post is interesting:
How can I implement this and would it help?
My general question is if there is anything I can do to successfully boot Qubes on my device or if further development will solve my problem.
I apologize if I am repeating a topic. I think Qubes is a fantastic project and I would like to use it on my new laptop.
and press F10 (or Ctrl-x) and see if it will boot to the installer. If you have the “Qubes OS R4.1.2-rc1”, you can pick the “Install Qubes OS R4.1.2-rcX using 6.1.ZZ” … to get a newer kernel (with better support for the Ryzen).
Note: If the installer works, you’ll have to add it again when the machine boots from the NVMe … the changes are not permanent, but works fine to test.
Seems to work for the rc version not yet tested with not rc version. Great thanks . Is it after the second boot permanent? I would test further if every thing is working fine and will report back. thanks a lot
None of the changes made at boot time, are stored permanently. Since my machine doesn’t complete the “initial setup” correctly (current suspect is the Lenovo BIOS/ACPI issues) on the second boot, I’ve not attempted to make it permanent. I think you should be able to make it permanent, by editing /etc/default/grub from a running/completed installation:
It’s been suggested, that you might get a better experience, is you can use:
clocksource=tsc tsc=unstable hpetbroadcast=0
as the permanent arguments to Xen (post install && initial setup). Since my machine doesn’t get that far, I’ve not had a chance to test it.
Wrt. release, the Qubes OS 4.1.2 should be just around the corner – so it might make sense to just use/test 4.1.2-rcX (and report issues you find).
That is what I am doing. I have been trying to get my 6000 series ryzen to work for some time. From what I understand, you will NEED to use Qubes 4.2 test relies as 4.1 has an older version of Xen that does not support Ryzen 6000+.
After getting past the initial install, my PC crashes on “Setup Network”. At first I thought it was an issue with my Wifi 6e network card that I added. However, this does not appear to be the case as I also added an older wifi card from a previous laptop that DID work with Qubes… no luck, it still crashed.
Let me know if you make any progress, I do not expect Qubes 4,2 to be released in 2023, it has some pretty major changes.
Yes I have a similar problem, even though Qubes has everything set up correctly with the USB controllers and PCI devices. Neither Internet nor USB works. I think I will wait for 4.2. Although it is comforting that at least the install is theoretically possible.
Addition: with adding x2apic=false to the previous, USB works for me now. I read that in a GitHub post. Issues with Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 ProX (AMD Ryzen 6800HS) Wlan does not work yet. I think this has something to do with the connected PCI devices, since my Intel card is not listed anywhere.
