[qubes-users] Qubes-R2-Beta 1. Upgrade to Qubes-R2-Beta 2 and create HVM.

Hello, I am a complete beginner.


I download: Qubes-R2-Beta2-x86_64-DVD.iso
It burns to my DVD.
It does not boot properly in my computer EVER. This is a persistant error. There are no other mirrors to download this disk image from, howcome?
Am I burning the image incorrectly? Have a got a corrupted image?
Could somebody please send me a link to download an uncorrupted and fully working (bootable) image.


I download Qubes-R2-Beta1-x86_64-DVD.iso
It burns to my DVD.
It boots properly in my computer.
Following the procedures to upgrade to Qubes-R2-Beta2, does not work.
The terminal insists that there is no upgrade package available, howcome?
The terminal does not even recognise the command qvm. Howcome?

I am using all the instructions step by step, line by line on your website.
Furthermore, some requests (from the terminal) sent to your websites for certain upgrade packages return as null, stating that it could not resolve the host. Are your websites down?

All I want to do is be able to run Qubes-R2-Beta2 on my computer. I also want to somehow run whonix inside an appVm.

I am using a laptop: Acer Aspire 5740. 8GB ram. 500GB HDD. Intel core i3 processor 330M.

Any body who can help me with this would be much appreciated. Thank you. :smiley:

Your processor does not support Vt-d, [http://ark.intel.com/products/47663]
so you'll miss a part of the security of Qubes.

Nevertheless you should be able to boot and use R2B2. I installed it using
a USB stick. Did you get any error message?
