Templates are missing from install and post install

I have downloaded latest qubes and used rufus in both dd and iso mode. During install i only see 2 softwares selected. No templates. Install completes and after reboot all the options are greyed out, there is no templates there is no settings to configure. Its the exact same issue as this one

You need to use rufus in dd mode.

Did you verify the downloaded ISO that it’s not corrupted?

You can try to use another USB drive, which helped the author of the issue that you’ve linked:

i have checked iso drive everything.im using dd mode. now i get a different kind of errors after reflashing. this is weird

tried a different usb drive and unplugged before reboot. its all fine now
