All was fine with Solus and the Athlon which was quite old and legacy BIOS.
This new board is my first foray into UEFI: I have disabled legacy (it's an ASUS board - they call it CSM) and I removed the PK key to disable secure boot and so Solus installation went fine and it correctly created a GPT partition and installed without error.
But..... the blinkin cursor in the top left just before the mouse pointer appears (signalling Budgie is about to display), stays blinking for about 1 minute. I have installed the Nvidia drivers from doflicky and this made no difference.
I am using the same 2 SSDs (the 1st has been re-written for Solus completely for this installation, and the 2nd is a GPT partition for a Steam library and so hasn't been changed).
I ran systemd-analyze blame and udisks2 takes 22.7s - what is happening?
