Now I know ! :D

I'm sorry I can't code, but I can stumble in the dark until I find the switch and get the light on...

My laptop is a Samsung, and in the BIOS there is an option «UEFI compatibility», which was on «enabled», with a comment «enables boot with UEFI». Now this got me confused : boot is not synonym of install...

So I decided to retry to install with UEFI compatibily UNABLED, and here I was.

Not really important, but in the case someone has the same problem...

I also posted this in the Newbie section,

My old laptop failed it dual booted Windows 7 and SolydX, my new one came with Windows 10, in order to not void the warranty I put the existing SolydX disk in a usb3 external case but the drive is not seen in the boot menu unless I first disable UEFI in the BIOS but the SolydX and Windows disks neither one will boot, any suggestions to fix, my only thoughts is to reinstall both with UEFI disabled.

New support questions ALWAYS deserve a new thread. And don't double-post. This is confusing for everybody.
