Default Another bad day with Manjaro and Solus

It's the second or third time i download Manjaro XFCE and the live CD just won't go (load) to the end so as to be able to install it. Have tried with or without proprietary drivers, the CD just won't go all the way to the end even after three tries.

- - -

It's the second or third time i've tried to get Solus to install and just can't get it to.
Usually, i just create an "unallocated" partition in Windows then run Gparted to create a single ext4 / partition and everything works just fine. Not so with Solus (and no one at their forum seems to have a solution).

Sorry guys, that's my rant for the day.
Guess i should just be content with ChaletOS!

IMO MX-16 is better.... or you could try using a USB instead of CD.

@MC, Figured you'd say something like that!

A USB i have, not sure how that could help to install Solus though.

MX-16 seems to be getting more attention than ChaletOS.
Wonder how they manage to keep Antix going at the same time?

Thanks for diffusing my balloon!

"... MX Linux is a cooperative venture between the antiX and former MEPIS communities, using the best tools and talents from each distro ..."

I'm not sure why either but I've had several instances where the downloaded ISO would install via USB but not CD, including Bodhi.

That's interesting to know!

Makes it more complicated 'cause you have to set Windows boot to USB and i don't do that kind of stuff much (maybe 8 years ago).

Connect the USB stick, restart the PC and press F11 or F12 while booting. Then select the USB stick.
