Part 2 of Playing with qubes

Is a rewrite of my old notes, Qubes OS Installation - Detached encrypted boot and header

Thank you @kaizer and @dum0 for donating to qubes so that I could rewrite this guide.

I’d recommend that you try in VM first, before doing it on your machine, so that you can also learn and understand too.

This is UEFI based only.

Please remember that we do Detached Boot, so if you plan to use sys-usb (well you should), don’t forget to edit the kernel parameter in the grub menu if you want to update kernel, and add qubes_skip.autostart to prevent sys-usb starting and detaching our /boot partition.
