I have managed to do this once but I wasn't able to repeat it for some reason...

I agree with you that we're stuck with the hardware as it is... 

It's still beyond me how it's not relevant to hardware requirements when 
someone can, for example, easily pick one CPU/Wireless card instead of another 
when buying laptop/desktop...
For non technical person (like me) that is the only hardware requirement I can 
deal with :)) 

Anyways, It seemed little rude from your side to dismiss me like that... but no 
hard feelings, we're on the same side here, right?  :) 

Regards

[qubes-users] Qubes OS installation freezes at installing bootloader?!

2016-08-19 Thread Darko Vuković
Hi there,

does anyone have any idea on how to continue after thin problem?

somewhere in the middle of the installation process screen freezes exactly at 
the moment where installer says "installing bootloader". Every time!

If anyone have some solution to this, please share!

Thanks in advance.
