    Default Re: Newly-installed Leap 42.1 OS not available in bootloader

    Knurpht -

    It's occurred to me, given the last few comments (yours and Peter_Abc) that the menu may not be generated from the 13.2 file. It looks suspiciously like the contents of the 13.1 grub.cfg file (refreshed this morning in Yast and with grub2-mkconfig), which does not have entries for 42.1.

    Further, where is the MBR? /dev/sda - which is the first disk in the machine? Does it matter?

    Can I force Yast in 13.2 to write the bootloader to /dev/sde?

    Please excuse all of these questions. And thank you again for your help.

    More correctly - bootloader that is loaded by BIOS is looking for different configuration file. Please run https://github.com/arvidjaar/bootinfoscript/ and upload result to http://susepaste.org/, then we have full picture what is where.

    where is the MBR?
    In YaST it should mean the first disk, where "first disk" should theoretically match what is hd0 in device.map.
    Can I force Yast in 13.2 to write the bootloader to /dev/sde?
    Yes, of course, just check "Other device" (I believe it is called this) and explicitly select it. Remove checkmarks from other bootloader locations.

    But really, you are the only one who can answer the question - which disk is used by BIOS for booting. You should install bootloader on this disk.
    Edit: you can do the following - edit bootloader commands and replace linux and initrd with linux16 and initrd16. Then after Linux is booted you should see /dev/disk/by-id/edd-int13_dev80 or similar. This is a link to the first device in BIOS order which is normally boot device.

    In principle you can install it on MBR of every disk to be sure ...

    arvidjaar -

    Thanks. Yes, this is somewhat embarrassing - I should know my configuration (which, as apparent from the all of the legacy OS, I built and have been modifying for several years) and where I left things. I do document each install carefully; going forward, I will document bootloader and bootcode placement as well.

    Here is the link the results file in susepaste: http://susepaste.org/62800712

    Thanks for your help.

    So apparently your BIOS boots from /dev/sda and this is where you probably want to install your "primary" instance of OS. Alternatively you need to configure your BIOS to boot from /dev/sde. Although in case of multiple instances much easier is to have small bootloader partition that chainloads other bootloaders and configure each instance to install bootloader somewhere else.

    Also bootloader location of 13.2 matches device.map you shown earlier - /dev/sde is hd0, so 13.2 believes it is the first disk.

    arvidjaar -

    Thank you. Yes, that makes sense and up until now, the booting operated in a chainloader-fashion (please correct me if I'm wrong), going from /sda ultimately to 13.2 on /sde.

    As indicated in my initial post, when I installed 42.1 I took the default options in the bootloader dialog:
    Booting
    . . .
    Change Location:
    Install bootcode into MBR [do not install]
    Do not install bootcode into “/” partition [install]

    I did try to reverse only to generate a warning. Suppose I reinstall 42.1 and change both lines? Or somehow figure out how to do it without reinstalling (I have no time invested in 42.1 - it's just a bare install, so it might be quicker just to delete the partition and start over).

    I would appreciate any guidance you can offer. /sde is a solid state drive - the only one in the machine and I have no desire to load 42.1 on /sda, a conventional WD enterprise drive.

    Thanks.

    I have done some research and work on the machine, but I'm pretty much back where I started: no entry for Leap 42.1 appears in the boot loader screen, notwithstanding that it is clearly set out in grub.cfg (see post #6 for excerpt). A menu entry in /etc/grub.d/40_custom also failed to work. So it appears, at least to me, that this is not a booting issue per se or even where the boot code is stored, even though they ultimately would be important for the system to work properly.

    There are some comments in the openSuSE forums and elsewhere pointing to BtrFS running against Ext4 as a possible culprit (my 13.2 uses Ext4; see post #1), but that is not clear as admitted by those raising the issue.

    I could consider pointing bios to the /dev/sde drive, the one containing 13.2 and 42.1, but I don't see how that could resolve the non-display issue.

    I am running 42.1 on two other machines, including one with mixed operating systems (and file systems - NTFS, Ext4), and the new boot loader screen (a horizontal banner with numerous options) appears on startup. In both cases, 42.1 is on the primary drive and the first two partitions (swap is in /sda1 and the os/BtrFS native is in /sda2). So I suspect that 42.1 is calling the shots in those cases.

    One solution I could opt for but seems like a waste of resources is install another SSD (I don't want to tamper with 13.2 - as mentioned previously, it's my production environment, with virtual Windows machines, extensive work, etc.).

    All suggestions welcome. Thanks.

    Try booting into 13.1 (which is on /dev/sda and where your MBR is
    located) and run 'grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg' there. That
    should probe for installed Oses and list Leap 42.1 as a boot option when
    the grub2 boot menu loads up.

    "Non display" of what? Leap 42.1 in boot menu?
