[qubes-users] Installation problem -- cannot install boot loader

2019-01-15 Thread William Oliver
Folk,

I am trying to install Qubes 4.0.1 onto a HP laptop (model 151-da000).
It has a hybrid disk system, 250G SSD and 1 TB SATA.  I had installed
KDE neon on the box, overwriting the native Windows installation, using
about 100G of the SSD drive.  I am planning on making this a dual boot
machine, with Qubes on the other 150 G of the SSD.

So... I try to install 4.0.1 on this box.  The first thing I noted was
that the default for the root partition is "LVM thin provisioning." 
WHen I accepted that, I got the error that this was not possible and to
make a different choice. I then chose just LVM, which it accepted.  It
then copied all the appropriate files and then gave me the error that
the boot loader could not be installed, but did I want to copy the rest
of the files anyway.  I chose yes.

When I rebooted the machine, I found that I could boot neither into KDE
neon nor Qubes.   So...   I reinstalled KDE neon onto its partition. 
When I rebooted, Qubes came up in the Grub menu!

I chose Qubes, and the initialization screen came up, but when I chose
the default options, it hung with the error that it could not find the
kernel file.

KDE neon came up fine.

So... I tried reinstalling Qubes again, only this time chose "native
partition" instead of "LVM".  Again, it said that it could not install
the boot loader.  I aborted it at that point because I had some work to
do and could not take the time to reinstall KDE neon again.

Any pointers?

Thanks!

billo

Qubes is, essentially, a Xen hypervisor (bare metal virtual machine host).  It 
has added complexity to provide a more complete separation of programs and 
data, and further compartmentalize different areas of sensitivity such as 
general web browsing, password safe keeping, etc.  You can configure different 
application VMS for different purposes and keep your information more secure 
than even a general virtual machine host such as Unix/VirtualBox or 
Windows/VMWare.

Attempting to run a Xen hypervisor inside of a VirtualBox or VMWare VM is 
illogical.

Qubes is not just another flavor of Linux.

Its not surprising at all. Qubes is a bare-metal OS, and one of its core 
features is to isolate risk at the hardware level.  This means on a Mac 
it _replaces_ OS X -- it doesn't run on it. A more logical arrangement 
would be to run OS X on Qubes which is the reverse of what you seek.

Running QubesOS inside a virtual machine is not supported, and as you found out 
it won't work in most configurations.

If you want to try out Qubes in your machine you could install it into a USB 
drive or USB HDD (i.e. put the installer into a USB drive, boot the installer, 
then install into a *different* USB drive). It will be slower, but you can see 
if it works with your hardware.

Hello Qubes group!

  I’m trying to install Qubes but it fails after “Test this media & install 
Qubes R4.0” at “Loading initrd.img”

  I’m on a 2012 MacBook Pro, running Parallels (which I guess may be the issue, 
as 100% of your documentation refers to VirtualBox...do you support other 
hypervisors?)

  I’ve followed everything as best I can and am stuck in an infinite loop. No 
issues running other major OS VMs (Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, various Win, etc)

  Please help! Thank you!
