    Default Boot only whit cdrom

    I installed the Leap 42-3 on an Asus RT5390 notebook
    After that, the setup was modified and the HD boot disappeared and was only booted by CDROM

    How do I put the boot on HD?

    Do you have any data on this computer? (to know if you can reinstall without problem)

    else if the computer is recent, chance is it uses UEFI and you should find a boot manager there

    UEFI ? What is it? Where do I find this?
    I'm trying to install again. This time I chose GRUB2

    Put the CD/DVD back in the drive, choose 'Boot from harddisk'. If that works, use YaST to reconfigure your bootloader.
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    UEFI is the name of the new BIOS since some years. You use it if you see a /boot/efi folder. When you use this firmware, it's the firmware/bios/uefi, whatever name you use, that choose the system to be started (Linux, Windows...). Then you have to use grub2-efi.

    But it may happen that even with UEFI firmware you use "CSM" compatibility mode and then only Grub2 (non efi).

    Very recently I had great problems to boot openSUSE from a HP laptop for this reason, UEFI firmwares are not that well done and very buggy
