DataDrake added a comment to T9681: Installer bug.

@STiAT Pretty straight-forward. If a volume is mounted in the Live system and you try to install to it, the partition management doesn't know how to unmount it before trying to format it.

@DataDrake is there any more information on what is the actual issue? I'm tempted to look into that.

DataDrake triaged T9681: Installer bug as Low priority.

This is a known bug and won't be fixed until the installer is rewritten or someone has time to patch the existing installer.

Astroskis added a comment to T9582: Window Maximizer does not work after single use.

Well did a real install and it's specifically a problem with 800x600 resolution, other resolutions in 4:3 work well. So not a VirtualBox problem.

JoshStrobl claimed T9401: dhcp requests assigning a new hostname prevent Xorg to continue working.

The more correct way to handle this is to have a network-manager-livecd package which ships with a file that sets the hostname-mode to none, which will inform NetworkManager to not manage the hostname and not set it. This should do the trick.

The installer won't detect drives that don't have partition tables. You'll need to add a partition table using something like GParted before it will detect them. I agree that not detecting windows is an issue, but that's been reported elsewhere.

Dolphin985 added a comment to T8973: Solus OS not able to install.

You are welcome, @Darius. Solus is pretty great, since it manages to combine the feature updates of a rolling release like Arch with the user-friendliness and stability of Ubuntu. The only real problem with it is a lack of available software at times due to this not having the community size and organisation of either Arch or Ubuntu. I get the feeling that Solus needs more maintainers for software packaging and development.

Darius added a comment to T8973: Solus OS not able to install.

I had problems with installing Solus with the UEFI too. I also ended up not getting to the GUI, but rather being in the Linux Mint (prior OS on device) GRUB menu. The difficulty of that for me was that UEFI mode for my bios doesn't naturally show USB drive extensions, and the legacy BIOS mode doesn't work with a UEFI flash drive. Did you check the formatting of your hard drive and Live USB drive, @Darius? Both of them need to be in GPT format, and the BIOS also needs to be set to UEFI mode to read them.

Thanks for the pointers, Framani. I found this guide also which mentions a similar (same?) process: https://discuss.getsol.us/d/1353-tips-for-dual-booting-solus-with-uefi I am attempting to do this now.

Framani added a comment to T9253: Installer overwrites existing EFI partitions, cannot select different drive.

I also had this issue before and what fixed it was to disable the existing EFI partition in gparted (remove flags) and enable the target EFI ( in the target drive). Once your new installation is done, enable the flags and it should work properly. You'll have to boot from uefi though in order to select the booting device. Good luck.

As you can see from these screenshots, even though I have selected /dev/sdc as the installation target, the installer forces me to overwrite my existing (Windows) boot loader on /dev/nvme0n1p2.
