Clevo P151HM1 Laptop, i7, nVidia 460, 8gb ram.
Installed Qubes from DVD, unencrypted.
3.12.14 kernel.
VT-x and VT-d active.
No TPM.

Not sure if this means anything, but I installed using manual partitioning,
/boot, /, /var, /home, and swap, all with more than adequate space, and the
DVM creation failed. See photo of error attached. After first start, the
DVM was listed in the QVM and a menu item was present, but it would not open
a DVM. I chose to reinstall without specifying a dedicated /var partition,
(only /boot, /, /home, and swap), and the DVM created and worked normally.
I have no real technical basis for excluding /var other than I didn't create
/var on my AMD PC install (done previous to this install) and had no DVM
creation issues there, so I decided to try this install without dedicated
/var. It worked.

Thank you for Qubes! I get the concept!

I guess that you've created too small /var partition. There all the VMs are
stored. For initial setup needs at least 20G.
