Downloaded it one more time and STILL got a .part file. Since I now have two copies, I'll just remove the .part to leave .iso.

Well, I just verified both copies and got a BAD signature on both of them: https://imgur.com/a/ejqj3fG, https://www.qubes-os.org/security/verifying-signatures/ (Step 3). What do I do now? Keep downloading until I get a good signature?

Yes

.part means your download was not finished? You seem to be having lots of problems, maybe you should do a memory test?

[–]CompleteDoubterII[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (26 children)

I'm sure there are many memory tests out there. Which ones should I do, and how do I do them?

[–]d3rr 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (25 children)

Any bootable Linux drive/disc should have a memory test menu item you can boot into. Then just let it run for an hour or so and see if any errors come up.

Do you mean that, if I try to run QubesOS (which is based on Linux) from my USB, I will be able to do a memory test on it, or that if I have a Linux operating system, I would have a memory test menu item when I try to run QubesOS from my USB? If the latter, I cannot do that as I have Windows 10.

The former. The memory test is an alternative OS that you can boot into (if you have uefi off in your bios settings) from most live Linux distros. Was unable to confirm if Qubes has it. See the screenshot here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/591488/how-do-i-run-memtest86/591502

Simplest is running it from a flash drive I guess.

Cool, thanks. I'll do it tomorrow probably.

No matter which of the Shift keys I held, I never got a grub menu. Help?

[–]d3rr 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

What distro and how are you running it?

[–]CompleteDoubterII[S] 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I have the Qubes (4.0.1) ISO on my USB, and I currently have Windows 10. I'm running it by turning on my computer with the USB inserted and holding shift.

With UEFI press (perhaps several times) the Escape key to get grub menu

[–]CompleteDoubterII[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

How do I know if I have UEFI?

[–]CompleteDoubterII[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Never mind, I found out I have UEFI.

[–]CompleteDoubterII[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (15 children)

Well, I pressed the Escape key, but I didn't get the grub menu. Instead, I got the loading bar and the text 'Press F2 for settings', 'Press F12 for boot options' on the bottom right corner of my screen.

I've tried both of them, but I don't know how to get it to boot from my USB in either option.

    I found out how. But when I boot from my USB, I get a red box with the text: 'Invalid signature detected. Check secure boot policy in Setup.' I don't know what to do with the secure boot policy.

    Ahh... it keeps failing: https://imgur.com/a/oJ2nDpS

    So does the re-download: https://imgur.com/a/pvL23Wq.

    [–]CompleteDoubterII[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    And unsurprisingly, it fails again: https://imgur.com/a/ADJuS5K.
