I'm finally taking the plunge and getting my feet wet with Linux, and have been fumbling around this weekend trying to Dual-boot Solus Plasma with Windows. I'm stuck with the finish line in sight. It appears installed, but I can't get it to boot up, or get the boot option to appear at start up.
I've successfully created the ISO USB using rufus DD formatting, created a 100gb partition on my SSD from the windows side before hand to install Solus onto. Secure boot is disabled. And It appeared to work & told me to re-start my computer. I did, but it just re-booted into windows, with no Solus at start up
I went to try & re-install it thinking it must not have worked, but it showed a new option of "Replace existing 4.2 fortitude" so it seems to have installed properly. Next I found a potential solution using the EasyUEFI tool. Going through those steps I found the solus boot file installed on my computer & added it using boot list EasyUEFI platform. It seemed correct, but when I powered back up, Windows boot loader was my only option. The other option available was boot through EFI file, but i gotta be honest im afraid to click things I have no idea about. Sometime i feel like this is defusing an explosive lol.
Any help would be very appreciated, I've been searching for hours but cant quite get it.
I feel SO close, it might just drive me insane, but I'm optimistic it will be worth the venture. I
