Thanks for the suggestion and sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I just did a fresh install with no whonix or debian templates and chose the "do not configure anything" option.
This left me with a sterile but working dom0. I figured the best way to proceed might be to run firstboot-qubes-text since I've had some luck with that in the past. I chose to create default service VMs only. This gave me a working sys-net and sys-firewall. Working in spirit, at least. I wasn't able to launch the sys-firewall terminal from the Q menu, I had to log into sys-firewall via the xen console to test connectivity. I tried to launch the disposable VM with firefox from the Q menu to no avail. I tried to make a new VM via the VM Manager; a new entry flickered then disappeared instantly. There was no indication of failure, but no new VMs either. I tried to run firstboot-qubes-text again, this time opting to create the default service vms and default app vms. I'm looking at the exact same, apparently successful output I received when I tried to build the service VMs only. It didn't seem to phase or duplicate the existing sys-net and sys-firewall VMs. If anyone has any suggestions on where I should go from here I'd really appreciate it!
