    Yes you are correct. I was trying to rush my post too much, as the colour coding took time, and I was under pressure to do some household chores. I should have typed:
    " Where I tried to match the gdisk entries with the efibootmgr entries by colour coding. The sony boot partition (?) appears to be on sda1. Windows-8.1 boot code on sda3 EFI. And some windows boot entries on your data partition sda5 which appears to be the location for MS-Windows. The left over Ubuntu points to sda3 EFI for boot code (where you note the is no Ubuntu in the EFI). And I see no openSUSE entry in the boot manager for sda3 in the EFI ".

    For some reason, the firmware is not picking up the openSUSE entry in the /EFI/opensuse . I solved a boot problem on a colleagues Sony Vaio Pro 13 openSUSE by copying the /EFI/opensuse content into the /EFI/Boot and in that directory copying the shim.efi on top of the bootx64.efi. You noted in a previous thread you tried that and it did not work. I'm not surprised when I see the "efibootmgr -v" output.

    So I'm curious, what is inside the sda1 ?

    I note this was the output of "efibootmgr -v" on my colleagues Sony Vaio Pro 13 before openSUSE-13.1 was installed (booting from a Lexar live USB stick):

    and this is the code after openSUSE-13.1 was installed (but booting again to a Lexar USB stick):

    Again, as noted my colleague's Sony would only boot to MS-Windows, until I took the action I noted wrt \EFI\opensuse\shim.efi (and the \EFI\opensuse directory) copied on top of \EFI\Boot\bootx64.efi. I'm puzzled why yours is different.

    Here's the output of ls -l in /EFI/opensuse:

    Code:
    linux:/mnt/EFI/opensuse # ls -l
    total 3563
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root users 1257800 Feb  6 09:36 MokManager.efi
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root users     125 Feb  6 09:36 grub.cfg
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root users  887416 Feb  6 09:36 grub.efi
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root users  121344 Feb  6 09:36 grubx64.efi
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root users 1380424 Feb  6 09:36 shim.efi
    Oldcpu: I am really puzzled too, how can them be so different ? very strange....Seems like windows overwrites bootx64 because after write on It at the restart, Windows starts automatically instead of give kind of errors.

    Is it possible that these troubles are because of the Intel Anti theft system enabled on the BIOS ?

    My colleague and I went with the default 'as delivered' firmware settings in their Sony Vaio Pro 13. The only parameter we toggled back and forth a few times was the 'secure boot' parameter, when we first encountered the Windows8 boot problem, to ensure the 'secure boot' did not cause the problem. I do not have access to their Sony, so I can not comment further on any Firmware settings.

    My colleague with Sony Vaio Pro 13 w/Windows-8.0 did NOT have the same problem, but did appear to have same Ultrabook.

    I solved this way:
    - when asked to select the operating system at boot select opensuse
    - hit the "e" key on the keyboard
    - add "libata.force=noncq" before the word "quiet"
    - hit F10
    - edit /etc/default/grub adding add "libata.force=noncq" before the word "quiet" to make this permanent
    - run update-grub
