Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) for All Qubes OS Releases

This list contains information about the latest stable release (R1) and the latest development release (R2RC1). You can also find information about the previous releases (R2B{1,2,3}) here.

Generating and Submitting New Reports

In order to generate an HCL report in Qubes, simply open a terminal in dom0 and run qubes-hcl-report <vm-name>, where <vm-name> is the name of the VM to which the generated HCL files will be saved.
(Note: If you are working with a new Qubes installation, you may need to update your system in order to download this script.)

Users are encouraged to submit their HCL reports for the benefit of further Qubes development and other users. If you would like to submit your HCL report, please send the HCL Info .txt file to qubes-users@googlegroups.com (see here information about the mailing lists) with the subject HCL - <your machine model name>.
Please include any useful information about any Qubes features you may have tested (see the legend above), as well as general machine compatibility (video, networking, sleep, etc.).
If you have problems with your hardware, please send the HCL Support Files .cpio.gz file as well.

Please note: The HCL Support Files may contain numerous hardware details, including serial numbers. If, for privacy or security reasons, you do not wish to make this information public, please do not send the .cpio.gz file to the public mailing list.

Legend

Note: The HCL is a compilation of reports generated and submitted by users. Except in the case of developer-reported entries, the Qubes team has not independently verified the accuracy of these reports. If using the list to make a purchasing decision, we recommend that you first test the hardware yourself, if possible.
