    Default Install, Grub2 error (bootloader)


    I am trying ti install opensuse on my laptop with win8. I boot from usb and tried to install it. Everything went smoothly until grub error at 93%:

    /usr/sbin/grub2-bios-setup: warning: this GPT partition label contains no BIOS Boot Partition; embedding won't be possible
    /usr/sbin/grub2-bios-setup: error: embeddingis not possible, but this is reqiored for cross-disk install

    Before, I chose defualt option of opensuse to create proposed home partition.
    After error, i tried installing with no bootloader and later also with bootloader on root partition. Both option causes opensuse install menu to appear again, where i can choose Installation, Boot from HDD etc.

    Please help.

    I guess you have a EFI BIOS, right??

    If so you need to boot the DVD or USB in EFI mode

    You should be installing grub2-efi and check the box to allow secure boot

    The EFI boot partition should be mounted as /boot/efi
