When I turn laptop on it just has a blank white page, doesn’t do anything. If I turn on a hold c it’ll boot up and let me choose solus to boot, I thought it was fully installed last night, I can still hear the disc chattering and the mouse arrow freezes. I’m letting it sort itself out for a bit

When you hold down the "c" (command key?) does it present you with the option to boot from *either* the hard drive OR the optical drive?

Comes up with welcome to grub, then goes to dvd, if I hold alt let it gives me options of hard drive, dvd and another

Just doing that now, black screen with flashing curser top left
Hmmmmm....
It seems that either the Solus 4.1 did not install or there is a graphics problem.
Does Solus run O.K. from the Live DVD? Do the graphics work when run in Live mode?

I recently installed Linux Lite on an old MacBook (2009) and it worked *almost* flawlessly. The only 'glitch' was selecting the correct keyboard layout. Worked fine when running from the Live DVD but not when installed to hardware.

It’s slow on the live dvd, I’ll look at trying to reinstall

To open the CD drive / eject the CD:
  1. Open Terminal using Ctrl + Alt + T , and type eject.
  2. To close the tray, type eject -t.

Don't forget to mark your thread SOLVED.

To do that go back to your first post and add SOLVED to the end of the name of your thread.
