I noticed this hasn't appeared on the HCL list yet. Is there anything left to
submit or test for this model to be put on the list? I'll be returning this
model to work soon. I've already had it for a month for testing this project.
I wouldn't recommend using this model if you want it to work out of the box.
I've tried quite a few other business class models. (five models to be exact)
This is the only one I've had trouble with that wasn't already listed as having
I tried everything I could think of with BIOS/EFI to get IOMMU to work,
including HP's manual CLI BIOS config utility. It appears the CPU should
support IOMMU but the motherboard does not.
Qubes 3.2 hangs on initial setup for some reason. It wasn't any of the BIOS
options. I most of them one at a time. (WiFi Switch, graphics options,
Virtualization, Directed I/O, disabling devices, etc) I didn't investigate it
much further than that. I'm guessing it was likely driver issues. It appears
most people use Intel systems, so maybe it's an issues specific to some AMD
processor families? The specific GPU in this model is integrated with the CPU.
Qubes 4.0-rc3 also has errors along with a lack of IOMMU support.
