    Default Win7 Opensuse 13.1 HP650

    Hi, I need help to install dual boot Win7 and OpenSuse 13.1, on a HP650 Notebook BIOS with UEFI. I have made ​​several attempts (install win7 after opensuse). But if I don't format the partition "UEFI boot" Linux does not start, and if I format windows does not start. Does anyone know recommend a guide? At the moment the status of my HDD is
    500GB HDD:
    -128Mb -> EUFI FAT Boot
    -100Mb -> System reserved (WIN7)
    -200Gb -> WIN7 NTFS
    -Remaning-> unallocated space

    Thanks

    Hi
    First boot from the openSUSE 13.1 rescue cd/usb and use gdisk to create
    a gpt disk and the following partitions/types

    sda1 - 128MB type ef00
    sda2 - 128MB type 0c01
    sda3 - 200GB type 0700
    sda4 - an amount for openSUSE / type 8300
    sda5 - an amount for openSUSE /home type 8300
    sda6 - and amount for your swap type 8200

    Install windows 7 and use the custom option and tell it to use sda3 for
    the install.

    When you install openSUSE, in the advanced partition options you set
    the mount point for sda1 to /boot/efi and DON'T format. After that you
    should be fine.

    You may then have to press the F9 key and select 'Boot from efi file'
    then browse to the openSUSE folder and select the grubx64.efi file to
    boot from after the install (and before configuration), it may also
    need some tweaking via efibootmgr to add the entry. But that can be
    overcome after you get both systems installed.

    I took another hdd I deleted everything and I tried your instructions:
    -I created a new partition table with gparted gpt
    -I created the partitions as you indicated


    But when I go to install windows 7 on sda 3 tells me that does not support the GPT partition.

    what do I do??
    thanks

    Hi
    You need to boot the windows install via efi, press the F9 key and
    browse to the windows DVD efi file, select and press enter...

    I insert DVD of WIN7 and press F9 but from boot list there isn't DVD with EFI. There is only DVD.
    Win 7 Is incompatible with GPT.
    I changed and created the dual boot with win8.1 and opensuse 13.1, but it is the same. If I not format the partition EFI BOOT start only win7 / 8 system.
    I have to find a way to place a file in that partition "*. Efi" for start Linux operating system.

    This problem for me is the bad BIOS of HP650

    Just a hunch. Am I right when I guess that you are trying to install the 32-bit version of W7? UEFI generally needs 64-bit version of any OS to play.

    If I am wrong, take a look here https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...Linux-UEFI-etc and pretend your W7 is W8. W7 does NOT handle secure boot, and you should disable hibernation. W7 does not suffer from the power-off problem of W8. The rest should apply pretty much.
    OpenSUSE 12.3 and 13.1 are also pretty much the same, but remember you should install WITHOUT Secure Boot.

    For the partitioning part, malcolmlewis' suggestion holds water.

    If you get any problems, ask back here.

    Good luck!

    Since this is W7, this one is better than the link I provided above: https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...v-sda/page5#50.

    AHI!! Perhaps the problem is I use a DVD W7 with various version of WIN7. Now I download WIN7 DVD only WIN 7 PRO x64 and retry.
    The secure boot is disable!!!

    Yes, DVD win7 all version repack don't boot EFI DVD. Original DVD win7 x64 boot efi. Now I try again!

    I did dual boot on HP650 win7 opensuse13.1, but I use another way.
    LEGACY BOOT disable

    GPARTED
    1-Start gparted and delete all partition.
    2- Create a table MBR (dos).
    3- Create two partition ntfs:
    100MB MSR (microsoft reserverd) tag [flag boot]
    80GB W7.

    WIN7
    -Boot dvd no EFI mode and install system into two partition without formatting.

    OPENSUSE 13.1
    -Boot dvd and select install
    -click next for all modules.
    -install

    Now when the pc start appear a graub dual boot.

    Thanks anyway
