Redownloading is basic troubleshooting 101 and was done before any thread was made on the forums.
Recent attempts have resulted in merely a black screen after selecting the USB from the boot menu. This was also done with a new download.

@moriel5 I reflashed the USB three times at the least and after that I just searched on the forum for posts with possible clues and the only thing I found was a thread with a similar problem and similar hardware. The end conclusion was that the drivers in the ISO weren't up-to-date enough for the newest 2020 hardware. Any solution suggested didn't work.

@Deftware Is that all you did? Because I'm using a 8 year old HD monitor from iiyama and I still got a permanent black screen while booting.
I got the same problem and from what I could gather it's because my system hardware (Ryzen 5 3600 and a RX 5600 XT) is not yet supported driver-wise or something (I'm not tech savvy enough to understand these things all too well) and the only solution would be waiting for an updated ISO.
Because Solus 4.2 was being released I take there's no plan to update the current 4.1 ISO.
Though I hope they either release 4.2 very soon or just update the current 4.1 ISO because these other distros just don't feel the same...Solus truly is in on another level.

Aight fair enough, thanks for the reply.
Is there an estimated release time?
There used to be a timer on here.
Just asking because the 4.1 ISO kernel isn't up-to-date with the latest Radeon GPUs (which is why I cannot install Solus).
If it'll take a while I can plan ahead and manage.

Patience is no problem, it's not something that's extremely important or something.
Oh ok, it does sound like a hassle when you're packaging though!

Happened to me too because of the linux-tools-cpupower package.
Updating everything else, closing the Software Center and updating the package alone makes it update like normal.
