I know this is a problem that many people have come across as I’ve been reading through answers on here and the internet at large and also trying to make sense of the official Qubes documentation. The truth is I’m not an expert at linux and command line configuration and many of the instructions in solutions I’ve read have just left me with an “ok, so how do I do that?” dead end.
So the problem is I have installed qubes from an image on a usb stick. The installations appears to go without a problem and I’m given the all clear to power down my machine and I should boot into qubes. If I leave the usb stick in when I do this I’m taken straight back to booking from the stick and back to the installation menus. If I remove it the system won’t boot.
Hardware: MSI Z170 A Pro
I belive I have set all the UEFI up as directed on the official website
I think it has something to do with boot partitions or something but it’s all a bit beyond me. Oh I also tried to get into my UEIF boot menu on start up and it doesnt seem that a bootable hard disk partition is there. I used the automatic partitioning settings on the installer as I wasnt sure how to set it up manually.
