Thread: Can't boot usb in UEFI mode

    Default Can't boot usb in UEFI mode

    Hi everyone!

    My problem is that when I try to boot the installation USB in UEFI Mode my screen flashes black and returns to the boot device selection screen. I have no problems in booting other distros (Ubuntu, Fedora...) but with OpenSUSE its being impossible. I've tried both, secure boot enabled and disabled. However, I am able to boot and install in legacy mode, but I'd prefer using UEFI so I can keep my windows partition as it is.

    Thank you.

    Hi
    What is the system hardware, dual graphics cards?

    At the grub menu, highlight the install part and press e to edit, in the linux line down the page with quiet etc in it, add the option nomodeset at the end and press F10 to boot, does this help?

    Hi
    Hmmm, maybe 32bit UEFI only....? Could also be the USB port, are they all 3.0, or have a 2.0 or legacy bios option for USB?

    The bios is 64 bit, as I said, other distros work without problem so I don't know. But if it's because of the ports, yes, they are all usb 3.0

    Hi
    In the BIOS, is there a legacy USB option? Or try a different port on the device....

    Hi
    How did you lay down the image to the usb device, dd, imagewriter etc? Do you have a different USB device you can try, or try a live/rescue Tumbleweed...

    OH, you did check the sha256sum of the download?

    I've tried three last snapshots, and yes checked the sum. I've also tried many different methods for writing the imagge(dd from linux, image writers, rufus on wondows...)

    Hi
    Can you try a Tumbleweed live version and just use dd to copy the image, also try a different USB device if you have one.... 4GB will be fine for a live system.
