I modified BOOTx64.cgf commenting out the mapbs and noexitboot lines. 
Then, following your message, I also modified the efi=attr=uc 
into efi=no-rs.
The result does not change.

This is after the first stage of the install has nearly completed, but
it sounds like you're not even getting into the first part of it.

Re: [qubes-users] How to access installer in rescue mode?

2019-12-18 Thread Claudia

Robert M:

I'm trying to install Qubes 4.0 on laptop that has UEFI firmware (without the 
Legacy option)

But I cannot get to the blue boot screen.

The official  "Troubleshooting UEFI related problems", requires  me to switch 
to tty2 (Ctrl+Alt+F2) . But seems that there is no combination of keys that stops the 
boot process before it goes to the black screen.

Any hint or suggestion on how to get the installation to start would be much 
appreciated.



You modified the BOOTX64.cfg file, right? And it's still freezing at a 
black screen?


What kind of GPU do you have?

Is the machine still responsive, other than the screen? E.g. does the 
caps lock key make the light come on? Or does ctrl-alt-delete reboot it?


I had a kind of similar problem on 4.0.2-rc2 with amdgpu graphics. 
Adding "nomodeset" to the kernel command line fixed it. Before I figured 
that out, in the installer, I found I could press ctrl-alt-f2 repeatedly 
very early in the boot process, and about 50% of the time it would 
switch to TTY and not freeze. No idea if it'll work for you, but it's 
worth a try.
