Update: I could resolve the problem after a fresh reinstall in UEFI mode with new formatted USB device.
After fresh installation of Qubes OS 4.1 no matter if UEFI or Legacy no VMs were created.
In the initial configuration menu under Templates Configuration the following lines are not checked and grey:
“Fedora not available”
“Debian not available”
“Whonix not available”
After confirming to finish the initial configuration I receive following message:
Qubes initial configuration failed. Login to the system and check /var/log/salt/minion for details. You can retry configuration by calling ‘sudo qubesctl --all state.highstage’ in dom0 (you will get detailed state there).
/var/log/salt/minion shows among other events:
[salt.pillar] [CRITICAL] Specfied ext_pillar interface qvm_prefs is unavailable [sat.state] [ERROR] =====['present']===== qvm.create: error: the following arguments are requited: vmname [...] /usr/bin/qvm-create sys-net --lass=AppVM --label=red app: Error creating VM: Got empty response from qubesd. See journalctl in dom0 for details. [...]
Calling sudo qubesctl --all state.highstage result in similar errors ending with
[...] DOM0 configuration failed, not continuing
Do you have an idea how I can fix this issue?
