Progress!  I did an lsblk and figured out that my "root =" should be 
root=/dev/sdb2/root (I installed on a USB flash drive).   I suppose it makes 
sense that lvdisplay wasn't coming up with anything, as I hadn't been able to 
unlock the drives.  I now get to the point where I need to enter my device 
password—which succeeds—but then the boot process hangs at "Reached target 
Basic System."

I'm then spit out to a dracut prompt, so I run lvm, and then lvdisplay, and I 
see /dev/qubes_dom0/swap and /dev/qubes_dom0/root.  So, in my Xen.cfg file, I 
have "".  Here is my whole Xen.cfg file:


kernel=vmlinuz-4.4.14-11.pvops.qubes.x86_64 root=/dev/sdb2/root 

Does this look correct?
