    (Continue the locked thread)
    I got it from Google ,click it for more : https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...reate-boot-DVD
    Obviously SuSE 13.2 is useless for making a bootable DVD,because my Mac couldn't boot from it ,(I tested it on Mac,not Windows computer)

    Is there anyone here who can help me ?

    You shouldn't use 13.2 anymore, it's way to old and out of support and maintenance. Download Leap 15.0, it's the most recent version.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum
    What model Mac are we talking about here?

    Get the latest release here;
    https://software.opensuse.org/distributions

    Are you dual booting? If so, would suggest the option key when booting then can install openSUSE in UEFI mode and boot into osX selecting the HDD via the option key.

    You should also be able to boot the installer via USB (this is what I use on my old MacBook3,1) rather than a dvd.

    Probably if you at least explain what you are trying to do, what does not work and what exactly you need help with.

    So you explained what you are trying to do. And what does not work? Or alternatively what you need help with? Your question is how to burn ISO image to disk?

    At least MacBook I have at home fails to boot from multi boot DVD (it presents “menu” to chose loader on DVD but keyboard does not work, so no way to make choice). openSUSE images are multiboot (legacy and EFI). The only way is to use USB stick.

    But this is pure speculation because you did not give us any information.
