My guess is that it would be related to a TPM, either being tripped directly (eg. by Qubes checking if there is one) or by detecting a hardware change related to the boot from the external drive. You could try removing/disconnecting the internal drive and then booting from the external drive. That way cannot write to the internal drive at all, so if it still happens after putting it back, it clearly is not a matter of accesses to the internal drive. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
