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 https://github.com/unman/notes/blob/master/InstallingAndroid.md Basically, you redefine the disks so that they are presented as disks that ReactOS will accept. Then you can just install to /dev/sda If you need help, just ask. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
