[qubes-users] Dell Poweredge R7525


Install instructions:

  • Use at least Qubes R4.0.4 iso to install, as you will need the kernel 5.4 to to recognise PERC modules.

  • Before install, you must disable Bios → “Processor settings” → “x2APIC Mode”. Otherwise it won’t install.

  • To setup onboard network card “Broadcom Limited NetXtreme BCM5720 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe” :

    1. Remember and delete the entries in “Qubes manager” → sys-net → “Qube settings” → “Devices” → “Selected”
    2. In dom0 terminal:
      Do the following for all the entries in step 1. Eg.: for PCIe device 64:00.0 this will be:
      $ qvm-pci attach --persistent --option permissive=true sys-net dom0:64_00.0
      (note the underscore in PCIe address)

All seem to work fine. Except I find disk writes a bit slow.
