You try Unetbootin?

Unetbootin or Rufus? I've found that it sometimes helps. Plop also, sometimes helps. Or, perhaps, your device is just not bootable? Ran into that quite a few times on my end. Solution: just keep trying each USB device you've got.

did you read the Solus Instructions?

We recommend either using GNOME Multi-Writer, which is a graphical utility, or dd, a command-line based utility. Unetbootin will NOT work. Only tools listed on this page will be supported.

While installation via Multi-Writer is a straightforward process, we want to guide you through installation when using the utility dd, as this utility could potentially cause data loss if not used correctly.

1. Insert your USB drive in your computer and open your Terminal.

2. Type lsblk into your Terminal. It should output something along the lines of:

 

NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT

sda 8:0 0 111.8G 0 disk

├─sda1 8:1 0 350M 0 part

├─sda2 8:2 0 39.7G 0 part

└─sda3 8:3 0 71.8G 0 part /

sdb 8:64 1 7.5G 0 disk

├─sdb1 8:65 1 712M 0 part

└─sdb2 8:66 1 17.2M 0 part

 

3. You will see one disk, in my case /dev/sdb, that is roughly the size of my USB Drive. Yours should be similar (difference being in size). Write this device down somewhere.

4. Locate the downloaded ISO. It will most likely be in your ~/Downloads folder. In the event that it is, type: cd ~/Downloads

If it is not in your Downloads folder, use cd to navigate to the correct directory.

5. Dangerous Step: This is where we overwrite the contents of your USB drive so please ensure you identified the CORRECT drive in lsblk above. My command would be below, however you may need to replacesdb with the drive we located above: sudo dd if=Solus-1.2.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=1M;sudo sync;sudo eject /dev/sdb

This will write the contents of the ISO to the thumb drive so you can boot it and also make sure the data is synchronized so you can eject the USB safely.

6. Reboot and select your USB Drive in your PC's boot menu (usually a function key like F10).

7. Follow the installation instructions via the Solus installer.

      my laptop has an AMD ryzen 7 4800H with integrated AMD radeon graphics, a GTX 1660 TI, my OS is in windows 10. My laptop has a 144hz display and an external monitor (60hz) that is connected to my laptop which works PERFECTLY FINE before everything.
       

      So on my laptop screen, DOTA 2 was open while in my external monitor/display, I have my Discord and website open. I was just watching youtube vids when suddenly my monitor froze then laptop display turned blue with text saying " ;( windows ran into a problem" or something like that. At first I thought it was the fabled blue screen that breaks your computer but to my suprise it just automatically restarted my laptop, upon typing my password on my lockscreen, I noticed that my external monitor isn't working and that my laptop display looks weird. So, I asked a friend and told me to check my device manager and I saw that my AMD Radeon Graphics has this "code 43" thing, so he said to just update my drivers and update my windows software, so I did all that and its still there. I did a little exploring myself on my laptop and found that my laptop display was using MS basic display and that it was on 1hz, now I was panicking because I was thinking that my driver is broken or gone, so he told me to try using the one on the AMD website that updates drivers, and so I did that but still nothing. As for the monitor, I tried trouble shooting it, connecting-disconnecting it, force detecting with settings, using the "add device" button under "Bluetooth and other devices"  still nothing, I really dont know what to do. I dont even know what happened before the blue screen

      I seen people uninstall their drivers then install it or using the roll back options but idk, what if something happened to my laptop, I dont wanna risk it ;(

      Your Cyberpunk 2077 save file will be irreversibly damaged if you collect too many items
      by Usama Jawad

      File this under the list of issues plaguing CD Projekt Red's (CDPR) AAA title Cyberpunk 2077, but apparently, if you craft way too many items in-game, your save file will be irreversibly damaged and you will lose all progress contained in it. This issue started making the rounds on GOG forums a few days ago but has now come under the spotlight due to the company's response.

      Much like The Witcher 3, Cyberpunk 2077 also allows players to collect various items to craft new materials for utilization or to sell them for commercial gains. This is a pretty standard mechanic that is a core component of major RPG titles. However, if you do this excessively in Cyberpunk 2077, you will corrupt your save file and lose all progress.

      As highlighted in various Reddit and GOG threads a few hours ago, save files are reportedly capped at 8MB. If you exceed this limit - which is very much doable if you like to collect and craft items -, your save file will be irreversibly damaged. This is presented by a warning sign on the save file, saying that "Saved data is damaged and cannot be loaded".

      This issue is confirmed to be present on the PC version of the game, and other Reddit threads have indicated that the same happens on console counterparts of the game as well. CDPR has confirmed the problem and stated that:

      While CDPR hasn't confirmed as to why this limit exists in the game - particularly when this mechanic is such a core component of the "true" RPG experience -, it is likely due to some technical limitation and will be fixed in a future patch, currently anticipated in January 2021. However, until then, players are on their own.

      UNetbootin 7.00

      UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu, Fedora, and other Linux distributions without burning a CD. It runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. You can either let UNetbootin download one of the many distributions supported out-of-the-box for you, or supply your own Linux .iso file if you've already downloaded one or your preferred distribution isn't on the list.

      UNetbootin can create a bootable Live USB drive, or it can make a "frugal install" on your local hard disk if you don't have a USB drive. It loads distributions either by downloading a ISO (CD image) files for you, or by using an ISO file you've already downloaded.
