    When I went to partition disk part during installation, the suggested partition was like this:
    1. Shrink windows partition /dev/sda5 to 129.01 GB (shown with red color)
    2. Create swap Volume/dev/sda6 (2 GB)
    3. Create root volume/dev/sda7 (9.77GB) with ext 4

    4 Create volume/dev/sda/sda8 for/home (13.96 GB)
    with ext 4
    Should I edit them or create the new one.?Because when I create partition it limitation is 7MB.

    Well that is a bit tight. You can edit the suggested sizes but you can not shrink Windows if it is full of data

    So my suggestion is to go into Windows shrink the partition to free space then install openSUSE to the free area. It is always a good idea to defrag Windows before resizing.The installer will suggest the use of the free space if you give it sufficient space to install. And you can always change the values suggested if it is not what you want. It is just a suggestion which you can accept or not.

    nothing if there is a XP partition it should show up in the grub menu. Note if it does not don't panic it can be fixed

    Should I install opensuse in MBR or from root partition?

    Thanks mate. It works on my PC. The only problems is that no sound when I streaming video and listen to music. About that problem I'll fix it. That's very kind of you Mr.Gogalthorp .

    Did you install the multi-media codecs. Note this is open SUSE only open source software is supplied by default so you must install any propritary stuff you might want. Note again that a lot of entertainment stuff is propritary.
