HVM: Yes (Active)
I/O MMU: No
HAP/SLAT: Yes
TPM: No
REMAPPING: No
Qubes: R4.01
Xen: 4.8.5-7.fc25
Kernel: 4.14.119-2

Works like a charm after some minor tweaks:

1) Set BIOS/EFI date to UTC
2) During install, ignore messages about missing IOMMU
3) After installation, reboot WITHOUT any USB devices attached (storage, mouse etc.)
4) Ignore messages about sys-net not starting (xenlight error)
5) In Qubes Domain Manager, change Virtualization Mode in Advanced tab from HVM to PV for both sys-net and sys-usb (because of missing IOMMU)
6) Reboot
7) Set time zones to your preference in ALL domains, using "timedatectl set-timezone" in dom0/Fedora and "dpkg-reconfigure tzdata" in sys-net and all others
8) Use "System Tools"; "Qubes Update" tu update domains (if updates are available)
9) If no sound: run "sudo alsactl init" in dom0 terminal
10) Update dom0 rpm's running "sudo qubes-dom0-update" in a terminal
11) Perform apt updates/upgrades/dist-upgrades as instructed by WhonixCheck when firing up Whonix domains
12) Don't do binary TBB upgrades when proposed. Use inline upfdate only or you lose your settings.

Cheers,
