I installed Solus from the Live USB (clicking the install icon) and installed it 'over' my Ubuntu partition using the second option from the popup installation window. It all worked fine until when it went to restart and it just boots up into the grub command line
. I thought I'd destroyed my Windows installation, as I want to dual boot and replace my Ubuntu, but luckily when I type 'exit' at the grub command line it boots into Windows (phew). The only way I can boot into Solus is to use my laptop's boot manager and hold down the escape key before turning on and select the 'Linux Boot Manager' option
. But obviously this isn't ideal and the Ubuntu bootloader is obviously still on there (see above image). I could go into Windows to delete/format the 'offending' partition but I don't wanna brick my Windows installation and probably everything else. This may fix the problem, I just don't want to risk it without asking here first. I even tried the 'sudo update-grub' commnad in the Solus terminal to no avail, which makes sense but I thought I'd try it!
Is there an easy way round this? I imagine I just need to get rid of the ubuntu bootloader and any traces of it. It may be my own fault and I did something wrong but I'm sure I followed everything to the letter, just one of those things I guess.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I love this distro!
Thanks a lot guys
