Boot up freezes up about half of the attempts with SolusOS 3

So a lot of you guys on here know a hell of a lot about linux than I do. I am an effective user of linux but I don't know it.

So I intalled Solus OS 3.0.... and about half the time I boot..... it gets stuck around the time the 2-liner shows up on the screen (about the hard drives I think.. same boot up message I have always seen with linux)

Any thoughts???? I really like this distro, but this freezing up issue may be a deal breaker.
I am triple-booting with Windows 10, Debian, and Solus in the grub menu

Update: found a trail of very similar here->Solus bug, from search: solus boot hang
(what graphics device do you have? It might be: just-after&unrelated to fsck!!!)

Hi!!! I understand your frustration &desire that
Linux 'just work' for 'just users', as many/most people are&want.
I think the reason your post didn't get a fast reply, is that it's like: msg to Dr:
"a pain incapacitates me sometimes, but that's all I can/will tell you."
(no negative judgment intended; that's what an 'end user' would see of a hang)

Can you collect some 'vitals' (as in healthcare): Are the "2lines" 'fsck'?
Does Ctrl+Alt+F2 get you to a shell login? (last resort: attach phone camera picture)
IF so, ps ax might give a clue: program that's hung
(toward bottom, or maybe | nc 9999)
Also 'logs': dmesg|tail ; tail /var/log/messages ; ls -lart /var/log
As sort of a reverse web-search, use those cmds with: linux boot hang

Other LQers: feel free to toss in your favorite link to basics of troubleshooting this!!!
(I'm kinda burnt-out on web-researching optimal keywords, atm
I love trying all distros, so this happens to me a lot, so the links will go to good use;
Tho all I do is strace, future searchers will find this)

nbob: Toss us a couple key-detail clues to start digging into; LQers do love to fix things
