I am trying to install Qubes (release 4.04) on my ACER Swift SF315-51G laptop.
I think the issues comes from the dual video cards and UEFI from what I could read.
When I try the installation, I get a first screen of text, then last display line is : “XEN is relinquishing VGA console” and the screen turns black.
I am creating the USB boot disk as per Qubes instructions with RUFUS (v3.13) in Win 10.
I have tried:
- 2 different USB keys (verbatim 8GB and samsung 32GB)
- In bootx64.cfg, I’ve commented out both “#noexitboot=1” and “#mapbs=1” => this takes me to another screen but then I get stuck at multiple lines of : “localhost dracut-initqueue: Warning: dracut-initqueue timeout - starting timeout scripts" And then it times out and stops.
- In my BIOS (latest v1.06), I do not have access to modify either secure boot or UEFI boot to Legacy (Thanks Acer), so I cannot try troubleshoots I have seen with these modified.
- Plugging a monitor via HDMI, no change
I am a bit at a loss and inexperienced when it comes to Linux
Anything else I can try?
