    Unhappy Can't install opensuse 13.2 with UEFI boot mode

    First post here.

    I created an usb stick following this article, https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Live_USB_stick
    using Ubuntu 14.04 the dd command.
    Everything went fine, the output of
    Code:
    fdisk -l /dev/sdb
    shows:

    Disk /dev/sdb: 8019 MB, 8019509248 bytes
    64 heads, 32 sectors/track, 7648 cylinders, total 15663104 sectors
    Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x10ce3e4f


    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sdb1 * 3584 11647 4032 ef EFI (FAT-12/16/32)
    /dev/sdb2 * 11648 9138175 4563264 17 Hidden HPFS/NTFS

    The secure boot is disabled, however when I select boot from UEFI it get stuck on a grub 2 prompt.

    Any thoughts?

    Did you check the check sums of the download? Also did you copy to the device rater then a partition on the device?

    My md5sum is different. That is odd, I installed without any errors on a virtual machine.

    I checked with md5sum, and I got:

    7adf1f38977d9d45e4728731dfaecaa9 openSUSE-13.2-DVD-x86_64.iso

    Anyways I will download it again.

    Thanks for now.

    Interesting. Here's my output:

    I am showing twice the number of sectors that you are showing.

    If your output said "1024" for sector size, that might seem reasonable. But otherwise the partition sizes you show don't match the number of sectors.

    Maybe that's just a different version of "fdisk" with different output. I did the listing with opensuse 13.2.

    Maybe I should boot Mint 17.1 (based on ubuntu 14.04) and try listing from there.

    Okay, I tried that and my output more nearly matches yours. I should have looked more closely. It shows number of blocks, while the opensuse fdisk output shows number of sectors.

    I used:

    dd bs=4M if=/path/to/iso of=/dev/sdbX

    fdisk and dd versions:

    fdisk -v
    fdisk (util-linux 2.20.1)

    dd --version

    Do not specify the partition X in your example should be non existent. I assume the USB shows up as sdb you want to copy to the device not to a partition on the device.

    I personally use cp

    cp pathroiso /dev/sdX

    where X is the USB drive

    In this case the iso should be mounted before, right?

    No the iso is just a file. Copy the raw file to the raw device. No mounting invloved

    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.
