Thank you Unman. I do not use React-OS anymore. It worked fine on Qubes 3. But I really think it was a bad decision to support only xvda. It is not only Android, React-os, Chrome-Os and others. It is about Qubes users. I will keep using Qubes-OS 4 even with his limitations, but I hope Qubes-os chooses to be easier to his users, in the future.
