The file was in Home/User/Downloads, and I did make sure to include the command. Also, the Ubuntu file did end in “.iso”.
I did run qvm-start in dom0. I believe I typed “qvm-start <Ubuntu> --cdrom=sys-net:/home/user/Downloads/<ubuntu-17.04-server-amd64.iso>”, or I did the same thing but replaced “Ubuntu” with “hvm”. (“Ubuntu” is the name of the standalone VM I made and wanted to attach the .iso to.) As for the qvm-run error, I have no idea if I entered the location correctly or not. I typed “qvm-run --pass-io <sys-net> 'cat /home/user/Downloads/<ubuntu-17.04-server-amd64.iso>' > ubuntu-17.04-server-amd64.iso”. I did copy the template to dom0, but I could not find it in dom0 (when I open the dom0 Boot Screen where stand-alone VMs look for things to boot from, I cannot find the template file there) and so was unable to install it in dom0. I did install Xenial in sys-net, but I couldn’t find the template when I looked at my list of VMs, even when I use the methods you listed. I believe my main problem is copying the files to dom0 in general, because that is the only way I can make these files into VMs. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
