One thing : sys-usb don’t work, i’m currently trying to see why, maybe i have to check something in the BIOS because the VM will boot if there is no PCI (USB) device in “device” option.
[edit] : USB work only if you select “DISABLE” in BIOS option “USB 3.0” (auto and enable won’t work)

Also experiment with the strict_reset and/or permissive option on the USB controller: USB Troubleshooting | Qubes OS.

Thank you for your HCL report, it is not part of this pull request:

... and will be visible on the website soon!

I marked it as "works" confident that the sys-usb issue can be sorted out. In case you haven't already, I recommend checking for this:

In particular --option no-strict-reset=true
