Trying to install R4.2.0-rc4 from an 8GB USB flash drive on a T15 (Gen 1) Thinkpad that installed/runs R4.1.2 with no problems. The bootloader loads normally. After selecting “*Test media and install…” the cursor blinks for a moment then hangs on a black screen (requiring hard reset, CTRL-ALT-DEL is non-responsive). I notice only one difference from R4.1.2:
After writing the ISO to the USB drive, I see the following partitions in (gnome-disks):
Partition1 Free Space 6.3 GB Unknown 1.4 GB
Partition 1 also shows
Partition Type: Linux (Bootable)
In contrast, R.4.1.2 (similar to all previous releases that I recall) shows:
QUBES-R4-1-2-X86-64 ANACONDA Partition 1 Partition 2 Free Space 6.2 GB ISO9660 2.4 MB FAT 1.6 GB
Has the ANACONDA partition been removed in R4.2.x? Or is there something wrong with the ISO? gpg2 --verify gives good signature, and all media creation steps are the same.
