im trying to install qubes OS on my old laptop, which it has these specifications:-
1- HDD 500GB Toshiba
2- core 2 due Intel process
3- 3GB RAM DDR3
4- laptop model:- hp pavilion entertainment PC
-how im trying to install qubes OS?
1- downloaded the DVD image of qubes OS R2 version and burn it normally with windows 8.1 default burner
2- clicked on install the qubes or something like that (which is the first choice).
3- i have chosen qubes to be the default/main system by formatting the whole drive and installing it on full storage.
4- the process went good till it says press Reboot button
when i press reboot the laptop going to be rebooted but it doesnt show anything except an blinking dash - on the upper left of the screen. (which is reminds me in linux server or dos)
note*:- i have installed debian wheezy before fromatting the hard with qubes OS. it sounds for me it doesnt matter since its formatted but in case, just to let u know more about the issue.
