[qubes-users] HCL - Asus All Series

Got interested about Qubes and decided to try it on my 9 year old computer. to my surprise it worked flawlessly!!!

Not a single error so far, browsed tor/installed templates/packages and played around with most settings and everything seems to be working fine.

Only bug I have had so far is Xscreensaver related. I typed my password but the GUI was stuck on xscreensaver and the screen would only update where my mouse cursor was. I had to do a reboot.

TPM is a definite no, I saw no options for it in BIOS and neither do I have a card and I have not spotted a 14pin slot on the motherboard.

BIOS had no reference of IOMMU but it seems to be working fine, the installer did not throw me an error telling me I did not have IOMMU and all cubes reset without a problem.

Good performances no hiccups

I might add that at first after installing it gave me a black screen with a blinking prompt. to fix this issue I had to go in the BIOS and change the UEFI settings which had a choice between “windows systems” and “others”

Hi Stat Pow,

any chance you could tell us the actual model used? Asus motherboards are always reported as "All series" in the automatically generated report, but I am trying to clean up and make the HCL more useful. So if you can, please share the exact model so I can fix it.
