(Long story short. Lost a new expensive sansdisk USB running solus updates recently. It's possible this is my fault. MBR is gone. Not recognized as device. Used a bent-fork old solus 1.2.1 to install on. Barely mounts but I have my Budgie 3. back.. Found 3 better USB's in shed. Solus installer recognizes NONE of them......)
'YOU HAVE BOOTED SOLUS IN UEFI MODE, HOWEVER YOUR SYSTEM IS CONFIGURED BY WINDOWS TO USE BIOS MODE......"
No installs for me in days. I have to ditch old USB while I can still barely mount it and it's a miracle that took an install at this rate.
1) I booted Solus Live in UEFI? I picked "UEFI or BIOS" in Rufus per Solus install directions
2) Or does this mean my Lenovo sys booted in UEFI?
2.5) Or by hitting the Rufus "BIOS or UEFI" tab (per Solus recommend) the DD/ISO refused to see the installed legacy bios?
3)I don't have a BIOS toggle in my BIOS to go from UEFI to Legacy Bios. Solus Live told me my Basic Input/output system was configured BIOS in this message, right?
4) Your sample RUFUS 2.5etc screen is a version I can't even find. Rufus website calls 2.18 their latest. Your install pics differ from the 2.18 in two ways. One version calls FAT32 the default in the picture. The app calls FAT default. AND---the 2.18 version I have says "Format to BIOS or UEFI-CSM." The tab in Solus installs omits the CSM. Have no idea if my #4 is even relevant.
4.5) I don't have the disable secure boot option in my bios like all the install thread responders recommend similar peeps like me do
**Having done this successfully three times in 1.5 years I am shocked it no longer works.
**Having done this successfully three times in 1.5 years I am doing this to the letter to the Solus Live install page per usual.
**Solus Live will no longer recognize a formatted USB to save it's life....what can I do on my end?
Thank you for anything.
My head hurts something fierce. Lager may help.
