    Default Re: openSUSE different from other Linux OS for Intel NUC... Why? Need help for installation.

    Thanks Sir
    I have installed openSUSE now but the system boots directly into Win 8.1.

    Please guide me the final steps of installation.

    The terminal now says:
    Code:

    Why does it still says Microsoft Basic data in sda5 and 7?
    I am in live USB session.

    I think you change that in BIOS. In EFI you should get a menu somewhere
    to choose what to boot. The implementation differs amongst machines.

    I think that is irrelevant, don't worry.

    Finally I am able to install openSUSE 13.2 in dual boot with Win 8.1 (after repeat format and reinstalling both).
    Presently typing this in openSUSE.

    Few errors (minor/ major) still remain.
    The terminal says partition table entries are not in disk order. And Linux does not identify itself on sda6,7,8.

    Code:
    Disk /dev/sda: 931.5 GiB, 1000204886016 bytes, 1953525168 sectors

    Partition table entries are not in disk order.
    Now how should I proceed further?
    Please guide.

    Wonderful!

    Nothing to do about it, not important at all :-)

    You probably can change in fdisk how the partition types are identified,
    but I have never done that in a GPT partition, so I can't advise (I
    would find my way while doing it, but I have nowhere to try just now).
    But it has no importance, I think.

    And the order of the partitions is only of importance when you try to
    resize, create, delete partitions; the warning is to make you look more
    carefully at the partitions and not assume they are in order. It is a
    warning for the human, the computer doesn't care at all.

    With GPT partitioning fdisk does not identify types correctly. It is an old program written before GPT existed.

    use

    gdisk -l /dev/sda

    If you want accuracy

    With gdisk you must specify the device

    Good you got it running

    Disk order is not a problem it is just a warning and in any case does not matter. You will notice that the start/end sector numbers are not in disk order ie That just means that you freed space not at the end of the partitions but in the middle some where. that is of no problem to the OS and fdisk is just being picky.

    Many many Thanks to all of you for being so patient and teaching me a lot.
    I have finally installed openSUSE only because of your help.

    Thanks once again.

    Regards

    But there was a summer of code project to update it, which is why it
    supports GPT now. I don't know how far they got.

    Well it is better then it was but still does not get the GPT type coding right. It used to throw all sorts of warnings but I think it used to show the actual partitions sizes and positions right. Someone must have added GPT partition tables because GPT uses different partition tables then the old MS/MBR partitioning.

    On my desktop machine I have one GPT disk, so I wanted to try. But it
    doesn't even see the partitions:

    Code:
