Cory,

In your original post about the Qubes 3.1 install, you indicate success 
installing ubuntu on the Samsung SSD T3.  How?  I have ubuntu installed on a 
Samsung 850 SSD, externally mounted and connected via USB, but I cannot get any 
of the ubuntu 16.04 installers (server or desktop) to see the Samsung T3. Get 
to the partition step and it comes back with no disks found.
Can you share the steps to get ubuntu on the T3?

Update:

I have invented a temporary workaround.

Requirements:
Another usb or harddrive of 32gb (qubes system requirement)
Qubes installer or another *nix system

1. Install normally onto a USB or harddrive

2. Use the qubes installer (ctrl+alt+f2) or another *nix system to dd the 
installed OS to the Samsung T3 Portable SSD
Use lsblk -f to find the appropriate drive letters.

Example: dd if=/dev/sdc of=/dev/sdd bs=1M
/dev/sdc being the installed OS, /dev/sdd being the portable SSD.

I haven't tested the copy extensively, but it's able to boot and run VMs 
normally.

Hi,

I am also having problems installing Qubes R3.1 to the Samsung T3 External SSD 
500GB. Using a pgp and hash verified iso that passes the media verification 
test. Running on a Intel Core i5-4570 @ 3.20GHz.

The install fails on the "creating swap" step with an "unknown error". 
devices.py line 788 is at the top of the error.

Also, manual partitioning doesn't work. Trying to create the "/" or "/boot" 
parition results in the error "cannot create aligned partition" or something. 
Clicking the "automatically create partitions" link in the partition page gives 
an error along the lines of "the root / partition does not exist" and "the boot 
partition does not exist".

I have tried switching the external SSD from a 3.0 port to a 2.0 port to avail.
