Trying to install, booting into grub

I’m trying to install Qubes from a USB stick but I only get to a black screen that says the following:

Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file complitions.


Secure boot is disabled.
AMD SVM is enabled.
Boot mode is on Legacy Support with Boot Priority being Legacy First (then UEFI).

I installed Qubes before on this laptop and it worked fine, not sure what’s going on here.I tried installing both 4.2.1 and 4.1.0. I currently have Windows 10 installed on this laptop, Ubuntu and Pop!_OS have also been installed in the past.

Thanks for any help!

I resolved it myself by creating the installation stick with Balena Etcher instead of using the command line as described here: Installation guide | Qubes OS

sudo dd if=Qubes-RX-x86_64.iso of=/dev/sdY status=progress bs=1048576 conv=fsync

No idea why it works now but it does.
