    Why not trying dd? I found that when everything else fails, dd to usb works perfectly.

    Gogalthorp pointed you to a link. In that page there is nowhere the word "imageinstaller". And to me the paragraph "Write ISO to USB" is clear enough.

    Sorry I confused name - Image Writer (not image installer).

    The outcome is the same.
    I guess problem is out of the question which method was used to wright the image because as I mentioned DVD also doesn't work.

    I used OpenSuse before without issue, so the problem is with this version.
    I'll wait another one to try.

    Use dd. It works.

    Code:
    dd if=/path/to/iso of=/dev/sdX
    where sdX is the usb stick. In my case, it'd be sdb. No need for sdb1.

    As "this version" is installed by many since it was released, I doubt it is the version.

    How did Imagewrier not work???

    Did not run? ran but you could not load iso? ran wrote image to device but the device still would not boot? device booted and the installer failed??

    Really need more info to help we can not look over your shoulder.
