I ran into trouble trying to install Qubes OS and I can’t find a solution. Really appreciate any help, as due to my threat model, Qubes OS is my only option.
I followed all the instructions on the Qubes website.
When I start up on my bootable USB, I do not see the GUI installer. Instead, I see GRUB. No matter what option I choose, the following happens:
The screen goes black for a few seconds, then black on white text appears. It throws the following errors:
6.5xxx) dracut-pre-udev-(652): wodprobe: ERROR: could not insert ‘floppy’: Device or resource busy
Then it goes through some stuff with a green OK status. Then comes this:
(FAILED) Failed to start udev Wait for Complete Device Intialization.
See ‘systemctl status systemd-udev-settle.service’ for details.
It takes a couple of minutes, and then continues, going through some stuff with a green OK status. Until the following:
(OK) Reached target Basic System
After this, nothing happens. A dash blinks forever, but the device does nothing, even for an hour plus, until I shut it off.
The device is a Lenovo Ideapad 5 Pro 16ARH7 (Rysen 5 6600 HS).
I’m confused as according to the Hardware Compatability List this device should work. I can boot into Linux Mint and Tails OS on the same device. On Mint, the keyboard does not work well however.
I already tried installing from Windows (with Rufus DD mode), as well as from Linux CLI, with different USB sticks, but it changed nothing.
My experience with CLI and Linux is limited, so really appreciate any help!
