In the first solution 2…Rg6 checks the wK via a8. After 4.Qe3+ the rS must go to f6, because d6 is guarded by the wQ via d1. In the mate, h8 is guarded by the bR via a8, and the wK would remain in check after 4.Kxg6(f6=rR).

In the second solution 1…Sg6 results in check to the wK from the bR via h8. The bR then moves to g8 via h8. In the mate the bR attacks the h-file via h8, and the wK would remain in check after 4.Qxg3(h2=rR).
