Im trying to transition from windows to QUBES so this will be my first OS other than windows and my first experience with linux, I know its tough to start with qubes but I think I can handle it especially with your help
I am currently using windows 10, and after learning that dual booting windows can cause an evil maid vulnerability so I decided to completely erase windows and only use qubes and run windows in a vm if I need to use software like Photoshop…
So I downloaded qubes checked the signatures and burned it to a dual layer DVD, backed up my data, logged in to the bios and enabled virtualization ( Didnt find VT-d, just enable virtualization option so hopefully it includes VT-d), , disabled secured boot and in bios, and in UEFI boot manager made the cdrom my first boot device, then inserted the DVD, restarted, grub loaded with three choices
- verify and install 2. Install 3. Recover
if I click on any of the the first or second choices to install I get an error:
Now what could be going wrong?
Form a little bit of google searching it seems to be an EFI boot problem But cant pinpoint which problem
Maybe my efi partiotion is not the first partition? Maybe I need to edit some boot stuff? But I don’t know whereor how from windows…Please help me with this Boot problem.
Should I try enabling legacy mode? Is legacy as good as EFI? it ok if I stay on legacy mode if it works or it can cause issues later on? Is it as secure?
Will/Can Qubes Erace Windows while installing?
I still am not sure if my laptops hardware is fully compatible with qubes, should I hold erasing windows until Qubes
install and all works?
Thanks in advance
