I’ll probably only reinstall the hypervisor as a last resort, since I believe there is a different solution. I don’t exactly understand the solution though.
The steps are these: Create a new Windows HVM with qvm-create --hvm --label green win7 Start it with an install ISO as described in the documentation The VM will be stuck at the glowing logo: kill it with qubes VM manager Copy the configuration file: cp /var/lib/qubes/appvms/win7/win7.conf /tmp Edit the file, substituting the video driver from 'xen' to 'cirrus': Start the VM using the modified config file: qvm-start win7 --custom-config=/tmp/win7.conf Install windows note Windows will reboot a few times: make sure to start the VM with the --custom-config argument every time When windows is successfully installed, disable driver signing with bcedit (see install docs) Start the VM, but use the Qubes Tools option: qvm-start win7 --install-windows-tools The VM will get stuck at the glowing logo: kill it with Qubes VM manager Copy the config file: cp /var/lib/qubes/appvms/win7/win7.conf /tmp My problem is with the configuration files. I tried it, and the file is completely blank (or I did something wrong). Besides that, I don’t understand how exactly to change the drivers. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
