Need help for a particular installation in Dual Boot

Previous issue:Well... No, I did not... ^^'
However... I just tried and I got another problem.
I tryed to make the USB live again, from the .iso of Solus 3 mate and while thinking about switching to "DD image" as you suggested.
In a word, I went further with this "DD image" option, but I'm still unable to install Solus on my laptop because of the problem I just explained.
- - With the 1st USB key (of 64 Go, in 3.0), when I enter in the "boot menu", it is finally suggested to launch Solus 3 Mate. So I choose that, then, a black screen appears, text is scrolling. Everything seems to go fine, and then, I find 2 Solus desktop, side by side, cloned, with no mouse cursor. Worried about it, I have to admit, I didn't try to install Solus. Plus, I remembered I made the USB live with Rufus on a computer with 2 screens, so, I thought that it could be the origin of the problem. So...
- - ... I took another USB key (of 8 Go, in 2.0), copy-pasted the iso of Solus and Rufus in it, and then, made again everything directly on my new laptop with a single screen, on windows 10. Then I restarted the computer, enter the boot menu, launch Solus 3 and... it only got worse. I still got the double screen, I think from the format I got of my screen, but it was all... confused. I couldn't understand anything which was happening on the screen. It was all scrambled. So, I had to shut down my computer.
Can someone help me again, please?
And at worst, is my problem the kind of issue I can fix by buying a DVD reader which can be plugged in USB port and by making a classic and good DVD iso? Making a USB live is really a pain it seems! ><
PS: Plus, I noticed that, by using this "DD image" option, all my USB keys got a decrease of capacity and I was unable to format them on my Windows 10. I hope that I'll find a way to get my keys back once I managed to install Solus, because a USB key of 64 Go is not very cheap... =/
I know now that the problem is not from my USB key, but from my laptop. Because I tryed to launch the key on my desktop computer, and the iso was launched perfectly. So... I don't know, maybe there is another problem in my boot menu options?
I can post here a video showing the problem I meet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Plb3DQqtBTw&app=desktop
And there, I take a photo of the options I have on my boot menu: https://sta.sh/22a46pje561q?edit=1
If you understand and can tell me what is wrong and what I should change, that'll be really super. Because I really feel like I'm stuck there. =/
Thank's in advance for any help.
First message:My laptop is repaired and back.
So, since everything seems to go well, I decided to finally try to follow your advices to try to install Solus in my 2nd SSD (the 1st one being with Windows 10).
So, I've created my USB live using the programm Rufus (and set it to UEFI GPT, since my computer is in UEFI GPT) and the .iso of Solus 3. Then, I rebooted my laptop and entered to the boot menu (after I checked if my "Secure boot" is disabled) and chose to launch the USB.
And there goes my first problem. Nothing's happening. I have a black screen for 3 to 5 seconds, and then, I'm back to the boot menu again. Solus can't be launched.
Of course, I searched for a solution. I found some instructions and read the documentation, as kyrios recommended here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=11071 . I also tryed to switch to "Legacy (bios) mode", as it was suggested, but it only got worse. In legacy mode, not only the Solus USB keep refusing to launch, but my Windows SSD refuse to be launched as well and I'm always going back to the boot menu. Happily, I was still able to deactivate the "Legacy (bios) mode" to get back my Windows 10, but... whatever I tryed, I found no solution to launch my Solus USB. Nothing works.
Can anyone help me to understand and fix what's wrong, please?
Thank's in advance.
I recently got a new computer, theorically 100% compatible with Linux.
On this computer, I have 2 SSD disks of 250 Go each.
What I want is to install a dual boot, to have
- "Windows 10 (already installed)" on the first SSD disk.
- "Solus" on the second SSD disk
Since it is not a "classic" dual booting, I wanted to ask for your help before I try to install Solus. How can I do? Do I install every partitions on the 2nd SSD disk? Do I have to install just the grub on another partition on the 1st disk and everything else in the second one?
What would you recommend?
Thank's in advance for any help.
PS: Please, if possible, avoid complex words / turns of phrases to explain me the steps. I'm French and not 100% at ease with the English language. ^^'
