Nope, no problems whatsoever for me during install, but mine was R3 so
things may be different. I remember I had a lot of problems while using the
system though, as an instance the screen did not wake up after sleep.
Needless to say, I completely gave up on using the Nvidia card and relied
entirely on the intel one.
At the end of the day, I bought a linux 100% compatible laptop and now I'm
happier than ever. I installed Windows and a shitload of emulators on the
good old Alienware and I use it for what is meant for, gaming. There is no
personal data whatsoever on the PC now, so this approach does not spoil my
privacy and security.
I'm pretty sure you can make a lot of stuff work with a sufficient amount
of headaches and swearing, but in the end some things won't be fixable
(drivers issues, mainly). Also, you should consider that Qubes won't make
justice to such a beautiful machine, and that you may not be able to use
most of the nice features of the Alienware. I love Qubes but according to
my experience Alienware is not the kind of computer you want it installed
on. This is obviously just my personal opinion, so take it for what is
worth (nothing :P )
