I must use windows for some tools which are available just for this (creepy) OS and I’m waiting for some cash to buy just a second laptop for this purposes. The question is, does it make sense to install qubes and windows together without loosing the security of qubes? So I can do it so long till I have enough cash for the second laptop.
Qubes is encrypted, but is it also encrypted while the work on it? I suppose there will be several security problems with this setting, isn’t it?
I red the following on this board:
“If you dual boot Windows and Qubes, it’s possible that a Windows virus could modify your Qubes /boot partition and infect Qubes. A way around this is storing the /boot partition on a removable drive which you never plug in while Windows is running or starting, but this doesn’t prevent all possible attacks. Windows viruses could for example compromise the firmware of various components or the mobo. In Qubes, Windows is run sandboxed and doesn’t interact directly with hardware unless you specifically allow it.”
So it does NOT have any sense to install it as dual boot, because of the lost security?
