I installed windows 10 on Qubes 4.2 following the standard installation, no special drivers. I have enabled stubdom-qrexec in order to connect USB etc devices.
Once a while, the window for this HVM (is console the correct term for this?) just disappears. I’m not sure if the HVM halts or not. The HVM seems to still be running and using CPU (I don’t know if it is running properly), but I don’t have any graphical interface to it that I can use. It does not respond to shutdown, so I end up killing the VM.
This usually happens when I change the screen resolution in the HVM, but it doesn’t always happen when I change the resolution, and it has happened on other occasions. It tends to happen more after the appVM has been running for a while - changing the resolution right after I start the VM doesn’t seem to crash it.
My computer has 64GB RAM and the windows VM is assigned 12GB RAM. I tried to turn “include in memory balancing” on and off, but that doesn’t seem to matter. It is assigned 4 VCUs.
I don’t have any USB devices attached to the VM when this happens.
I usually have an extenral 4k monitor attached when I use windows.
Any ideas how to fix this? Is there a way to bring back the window (if windows is actually still running)? Any other ideas for ways around it?
Are there logs that might be useful?
