    I just did everything again from the beginning. This time I checked the md5sum, which is ok.
    After that, again I followed the same steps as presented in https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Live_USB_stick.

    And for my surprise I got stuck on the same grub 2 prompt.

    Is this the computer where you ran "ubuntu"? Or is this a different computer?

    A "grub2" prompt should only happen with UEFI. And, if you got that far, grub2 should be able to load a kernel.

    Is there any more information or error message that you can provide?

    Unfortunately there is no single error message, right after I choose boot from usb, the installer get stuck into the grub prompt.

    I was able to install on legacy mode before, but the initialization time was much larger than ubuntu's.
    Couple hours ago I installed openSUSE on a virtual machine and used the ImageWriter to write the image.
    Same thing happen when booting.


    It seems to me that is problem to create the bootable usb. But everything appear to be fine with fdisk -l.
    I don't know, any help is appreciated.

    As a cross check, I am seeing as md5sum and file size:
    Code:
    350b8cb014a4e342cc9a7cc9df891b99  openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64.iso
    -rw-r--r-- 1 rickert users 4678746112 Oct 27 15:34 openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64.iso
    (the file time isn't important, but md5sum and length should match).
    openSUSE Leap 15.1; KDE Plasma 5;

    My iso:
    Code:
     $ md5sum openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64.iso
    350b8cb014a4e342cc9a7cc9df891b99  openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64.iso
    When I said "Initialization time" I meant after full system install, the legacy boot up was so slow that I immediately
    install Ubuntu again. But the user experience is so frustrating lately that I decided to jump to openSUSE.

    After creating the bootable usb, if I choose legacy boot the installation screen shows up just OK.
    If I choose UEFI boot, the grub prompt is what I get. It's frustrating.

    Hi
    On your system, is there any option for a custom boot or to browse to
    an efi file when booting in UEFI mode?
