Ok then, you might want to test different thunderbolt BIOS configurations. TB 
Security and TB Device enumeration mode for example.

I also know from experience that some docking stations firmware have bugs that 
might require a reboot and the boot process of the docking station can itself 
take a bit of time (~20s).

Regarding issues with when unplugging thunderbolt after boot, this is due to 
PCI hotplugging being disabled (for obvious security reasons) - more details 
here https://github.com/QubesOS/qubes-issues/issues/1673

@Jim: following awokd's procedure you should be able to get UEFI working, also 
the configuration that I described for installation and post-installation were 
tested with UEFI only

Now if you reboot and the PCI devices served by the thunderbolt/usb-c are not 
present anymore, you'll have to manually remove them from the list of pci 
devices that are passed through to your NetVM or UsbVM.
Same for when you boot with the thunderbolt attached, you'll have to reattach 
the pci devices to the VM for passthrough.

Hi Jim,

Try changing the default boot entry to the following:

[qubes-verbose]
options=console=vga efi=attr=uc
kernel=vmlinuz inst.stage2=hd:LABEL=Qubes-R4.0-x86_64 i915.alpha_support=1 
nouveau.modeset=1
ramdisk=initrd.img

Once you've installed Qubes successfully, try tuning your xen.cfg file from 
dom0 with the following configuration:

[global]
default=4.14.57-1.pvops.qubes.x86_64

[4.14.57-1.pvops.qubes.x86_64]
options=loglvl=all dom0_mem=min:1024M dom0_mem=max:4096M iommu=on ucode=scan
kernel=vmlinuz-4.14.57-1.pvops.qubes.x86_64 root=/dev/mapper/qubes_dom0-root 
rd.luks.uuid=luks-some-uuid rd.lvm.lv=qubes_dom0/root rd.lvm.lv=qubes_dom0/swap 
i915.alpha_support=1 acpi_osi=! rhgb rd.qubes.hide_all_usb
ramdisk=initramfs-4.14.57-1.pvops.qubes.x86_64.img

Hope this help

After install I tested different configuration and was able to get discrete gpu

- Removed nouveau.modeset=0
- Added kernel param: acpi_osi=!
- Changed iommu support from iommu=no-igfx to iommu=on

Hi Dmitri,

I've been using IntelliJ on 3.2 and 4.0 but never had the kind of issue you 
describe, however I had a similar issue with another java application. In my 
case I worked around the issue by downgrading the software version and never 
had time to investigate.

I would check the jre used by IntelliJ and eventually try to upgrade 
intellij/jre
