Hi, I'm using Solus with KDE on my laptop. However I've to install W10 to use some soft. My laptop works with UEFI & an Optimus Nvidia GTX 1050. I'm using Refind instead of grub atm but I can change it. How should I process to create my dual-boot ? Moreover Solus is on my SSD and I've another disk (hdd) of 1To ( 500Go for storage & 500Go to install windows)

I have installed Solus 3.9999 Budgie on Lenovo Ideapad 320. This is a dual boot machine with Windows 10 Home. I have installed rEFInd in the EFI partition and I can boot into Windows fine. When I try to boot into Solus, my passwords are not working.

Is there a fix or patch known for this? can we put it on a diet? its creepy how it crawls across.
