I have being trying to install Qubes R4.1.0 on a Intel NUC X15 Laptop (LAPKC71F - 11th Gen i7-11800H with NVIDIA RTX 3070) - There is a similar spec machine in the HCL lists - same CPU with RTX 3060, but the native screen is 1920x1080 where mine is 2560x1440. I have tried using a couple of external monitors but they don’t initialise even with the laptop screen closed.
I have verified that with the exception of the RTX 3070 the hardware should all be compatible. VT-x with EPT + VT-d + Intel PTT (Equiv of TPM).
I have tried multiple USB keys, with R4.0.4 & R41.0, installed multiple ways (linux and Windows). Both versions meet all signature and checksum checks. All of them seem to boot just fine and the problem occurs consistently within each version of Qubes but it not the same problem for v4.0.4 as v4.1.0.
I have tried both Secure and Non-Secure Boot and both perform the same as far as I can tell. Legacy BIOS is not supported on this machine as far as I can tell.
I have tried modifying the BOOTx64.cfg options in R4.0.4. I couldn’t find those options in the EFI partition on R4.1.0. I have tried to work through each suggestion from the “Installation Troubleshooting”, “UEFI Troubleshooting” and “Nvidia Troubleshooting” pages.
In the “Installation Troubleshooting” under the “Not asking for VNC….” section the second line of code appears abbreviated or possibly has a typo
—- intitrd.img. I’m not fully confident with those changes and may have done them wrong, especially as I’m not sure if they should go in the main partition (1st) under EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.cfg which I can’t edit.
R4.0.4 boots and produces the following screen, then the laptop reboots.
The last line is
R4.1.0 boots and allows me to chose 1 of the 4 grub options. The Troubleshooting (verbose) option produces the following, then the screen clears (from the top) and sits quietly until I eventually turn it off with a long press of the power button.
I will need to load the second image in a reply as I am a new user and limited to one media item per post.
The last line is
(XEN) Xen is relinquishing VGA console.
I have tried to carefully search the forum, documentation and web but have not found the answer I need. Hopefully someone can give me a pointer in the right direction. TIA.
