I have the W520 with CPU type i7-2630QM and Nvidia Quadro 2000M (Lenovo 4284-E78).

This laptop version doesnt have VT-d, but I completed the installation of Qubes R4.0.3 even though there was a warning about this.
When booting the system however, the laptop screen goes black and I cant see what's going on.

Any suggestions?

For Qubes 4.0 on the W520, I configure the BIOS to use the Integrated graphics only, disabling the NVIDIA GPU entirely.

That being said, it'd be worth it to switch to a W520 with a higher feature level CPU that does support vt-d.
