    Default Can't boot to tumbleweed after clean install of openSUSE Leap42.3

    Hi,
    As the title says, I can't boot tumbleweed.
    Tumbleweed is detected but when I try to boot it I got this error:

    Code:
    error: file /@/boot/vmlinuz-4.11.8.2-default not found
    error: you need to load the kernel first
    If need more info just respond to this thread and I will provide.

    Thanks in advance.

    I do not even know how to read

    Code:
    su - -c 'grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg'

    Please show /boot/grub2/grub.cfg from both Leap and Tumbleweed; upload to http://susepaste.org/ and post link here.

    Hi,
    As requested, here are the /boot/grub2/grub.cfg:

    For Tumbleweed
    http://susepaste.org/50324960

    For openSUSE Leap 42.3
    http://susepaste.org/17034922

    On side note:
    I can boot to tumbleweed using the bios UEFI boot but I can only boot in single user mode.
    I tried going in to init 3 after booting in single but it won't. If it is relevant to the problem.

    Both of the system is in UEFI and secure boot.
    The crazy thing is I recall just now that I used to use two separate /boot/EFI partition for each
    but I did a boboo not inspecting the boot partitions when I installed Leap 42.3.

    Thank you in advance.

    As a follow-up for my previous post
    This machine was dual booting Leap42.2 & Tumbleweed
    and both are using BtrFs for / and XFS on /home

    Now I backed-up my important documents in leap 42.2
    then wiped it and made a fresh installation using Ext4
    of Leap 42.3 in / & /home.
