This has come up a number of times on the list, both for ReactOS and
Android installs.
The issue is that ReactOS *has* to see a disk at /dev/sda or /dev/hda,
whereas Qubes presents disks at /dev/xvda etc.
Take a look at https://github.com/unman/notes/blob/master/disks_in_Qubes 
If you look at https://github.com/unman/change_disk you'll see a
possible solution: how to use those files is explained at 

Basically, you redefine the disks so that they are presented as disks
that ReactOS will accept. Then you can just install to /dev/sda
