Yes, I read that thread as well. The last post in that thread did not enable 
IOMMU on Linux, the second to last did and it's the same procedure I linked in 
my first post on

However, adding these parameters while booting the Qubes installer doesn't seem 
to have an effect. Are you suggesting I just proceed with the installation 
regardless and try to set these parameters in the grub booting config after I 
get up and running?
