Qubes virtualization question

Hey everyone, so I am trying to install qubes on my computer for the first time and I have been through documentation. When I try to install I get the error right after selecting language about virtualization. I have intel virtualization enabled in bios and still getting that error. What should I do?

You need to be more descriptive than “there is an error”. Say exactly what the error is.

Its the first error after selecting the language, it is listed here
qubes-os. org/doc/installation-guide

Unsupported hardware detected

It tells you exactly what’s wrong. Your hardware isn’t supported.

Qubes installation issues aren’t Qubes-Whonix issues. As per:

Please use Qubes support:

Yes but I have it enabled in bios and still getting that error.

It doesn’t say anything is disabled in the bios.

It’s saying your hardware is not supported.

Qubes doesn’t work on all hardware.

I know but instructions are saying if you get that error to enable VT in bios, which I did and still getting this error.

So thats it? Cant use the OS and tahts all?

Yes because your PC is trash.

But if you want to debug or go for deep discussion please discuss this with Qubes not here as @Patrick referred you.

Not necessarily. Qubes/Xen needs serious hardware resource commitment for smooth performance. There are other Whonix flavors that can work for your situation liek VBox if you need a beginner friendly platform or KVM if you have Linux installed and want better performance and security.

Don’t blame me if you brick your machine but some instructions.

You need to flash Bios. Get a copy of UBCD and your first option is Bios (to install on USB use flash boot). There are 5 programs that can help with the Bios the first and last are the most dangerous. Good luck!

Y’all need to chill and stop pointing fingers… or giving them.

I do flash my BIOS before an update and when I clean my downloads on a DVD with legacy hardware including a different processor. There is no danger if you know what are you doing. I would choose for this case Wipe CMOS settings (the last setting under BIOS menu). Let me just say if the machine is a Mac or Dell or anything other than some cheap Walmart special this operation will not create any problems. Best to check the spec from the manufacturer first. If you have no experience hacking hardware it might sound like giving fingers. I routinely convert Chrome machines and PS…
