    Hi
    And it's set to Legacy Support Disable and Secure Boot Enable? When you first booted, did it ask about the openSUSE secure boot key? Also try disabling the MS UEFI CA Key.

    In the last shot how do you get the UEFI Boot Order selectable?

    Yes, set to Legacy Support Disable and Secure Boot Enable. I've tried all the options.

    Nothing happens when I plug in the USB drive. Maybe I'm not looking at the right place. With F9, I get the five options listed in a previous post in this thread: no USB.

    I disabled the MS UEFI CA Key, but still can't find the pendrive.

    When I click on STATA2: and USB:, I can change the order. I've put USB: first, without any success.

    Hi
    All very strange.... so the iso image sha256 sum checked out ok? I'm assuming you used another system to use imagewriter? If so your usb device with the tumbleweed image boots from this system?

    Also, when did you download the Tumbleweed image? I wonder if you
    downloaded the latest one it may be different...

    I have now downloaded Leap 42.2 and burned it on the pendrive with another Linux computer with the dd command. I tested it on that computer (an old non-UEFI) and it works fine. But no luck with the new one. Maybe I'm looking for the pendrive at the wrong place. On boot, I hit F9. I get this.



    Then I select Boot from file. I get this - no USB drive.

    Hi
    OK, on the other computer, can you use imagewriter?

    I wonder if the USB device your writing the image to needs a cleanout... I use wipefs -a on the usb device partitions and then on the device it's self. I way also pay to run gdisk over the device;
    Code:
    gdisk /dev/sdX
    w
    Just to ensure it is gpt, then check the download iso via;
    Code:
    fdisk -l <your_image>.iso
    It should show two partitions one being an efi one.

    Then use image writer [preferred] or dd to copy the image over.

    Are there any BIOS updates for the system?

    Hi,

    I did what you proposed, except using imagewriter, which is not available on Ubuntu (the OS of the other linux machine). I'm still stucked. Anyways I ran a diagnostic in the BIOS and both USB ports failed the test. I will contact HP and will try again later.

    Thanks a lot for your time.

    Hi,

    I have reset to UEFI to factory defaults and used another drive. 20 minutes later openSUSE is installed. You got it right: hardware problem! Thanks a lot!
