    Welcome here v1c70r

    What does sp mean, and unetbootin?

    Error 17 -- the bootloader may be pointing to a partition that is not recognised by Grub (the bootloader).

    Can you explain how you are installing Suse, without a CD?

    UNetbootin may not work. The web page shows "Factory" being supported, but not released 11.0. Posts elsewhere indicate others have had this problem already. If you need to use UNetbootin, you could install 10.3 instead, which is supported. Then you could upgrade later to 11.0 whenever you want.
