I tired it on a few Mac and on each Mac the installer couldn't support the keyboard. Perhaps this is a more generic problem of not supporting USB keyboard (Macs use USB keyboard)? Or perhaps our initrd for installer doesn't have all the required USB/HID modules? Or perhaps Xen is making problems?

Which module is used for it in baremetal system?
I've tried some usb keyboard and it worked...

Still, it doesn't work on any Mac I tried... We're missing some module or magic kernel config... Sigh.

Ok, this is definitely a problem with the installer's kernel, and not with general Xen-not-supporting-apple thing. I have verified that if I install Qubes Beta 2 on a HDD using a normal PC, and then swap this HDD into my Mac Pro, then I can boot this Qubes Beta 2 and use it without any problem. Yet, if I try to run the Qubes installer on this very same Mac I cannot get kbd.mouse working.
So, which module are we missing?

Please, send lsmod+dmesg from installed system. And if you can - lsmod+dmesg from installer (using external keyboard?).
