Hello,

as my Qubes OS installation seems to get mature and the most important things work, I'm happy to contribute to the HCL:

Hoping you might be able to help. I have the same W540 as you. I made the bootable usb using rufus and the dd method. It install begins fine but gets stuck at qubes-mgmt-salt-base-topd. I have tried several times. I even left it overnight in case it was just taking a long time. Still can't get past it. Did you do anything special or different to get it running on your machine? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
