Notice:

https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Qubes#Notice

Qubes + Whonix has been fundamentally upgraded to a new native architecture that integrates much more seamlessly with the Qubes platform. This new system obsoletes the original and greatly improves upon the ease of installation and use of Qubes + Whonix going forward. For security purposes, documentation of the old obsoleted system will persist upon this wiki page until sufficient public leak testing of the new system has been completed in the Whonix Qubes Forum. You are welcome to download and begin using the new Qubes + Whonix platform now, if you take on full responsibility of testing and trusting the platform “as is”. A minimal beta install guide is provided here:

This beta install guide may not be tested as working, secure, or complete.

It will be replaced by an official install guide on the Whonix Qubes Wiki in the future.
