Hi, Check out these two issues: Installing Windows 7: https://github.com/QubesOS/qubes-issues/issues/3592 Installing Qubes Windows Tools: https://github.com/QubesOS/qubes-issues/issues/3585 The two problems you describe in the post seem to be the following: 1. Use qvm-prefs to set the virt_mode to hvm; the GUI doesn't work. 2. Make sure you set the video-model to cirrus for install.
