Hi Ray, 

It seems that i got same issue with Qubes 4.0 final, Lenovo X1 Carbon I5 vPro 
After this messages appear, the Screen with the "Q" shows up loading bar filled 
about 1/5 full and stucked there. 

Hope this Problem got some attention, and anyone got a solution or reason why 
this is happening. Maybe you have already solved it and will let me know how?

If not, sorry that i dont have a solution know, but i will work on get this
