Two issues on a new install and new machine


I’m having two persistent and rather annoying issues.
I’m running 4.1 on a Lenovo T490S.

  1. The Qubes Manager is no longer loading on startup. I can manually invoke it via the menu, and I am able to access the manager GUI, but I am no longer able to see what ram and CPU usage per qube is.

  2. I have a USB-C dock, which has some peripherals and two displays plugged in. Qubes will not make it to the ‘enter passphrase’ stage of boot when this is plugged in. Works fine if I boot, and then connect dock once Qubes has loaded.

I’m assuming I need to tweak something to allow the boot to proceed, but google is not helping here.

Can anyone help?
