    Default Leap 15, the Vista version of Opensuse ?

    Under 42,3 everything was working perfectly. Now, i got sound problem went i used the sleep mode. And the core seems to have a hard time following the mouse sometimes. Now my last update has erased windows from my Grub. That the kind of thing that you must expect under Tumbleweed. But not Leap.

    What is the fix for Grub ?

    Is there is a way to return to 42.3 ?

    For me, everything is working well with 15.0. And I think that what most folk are experiencing.

    We would need to have more details.

    Is Windows using MBR/Legacy BIOS booting or UEFI booting? Is openSUSE 15.0 using Legacy BIOS booting or UEFI booting?

    To go back to 42.3, I suppose you would need to do a fresh install. I don't recommend that.

    To understand your current situation better, you'll have to describe what steps you or guide you followed for your upgrade.
    Then, based on what you did, the probable next questions would be to display various that display your current configuration.

    Although I don't remember trying to go back from LEAP 15 to 42.3, sometimes I've been successfully downgrading by using the "zypper dup" command or using a DVD to do a "repair."
    You might also be able to solve your problems by doing a "repair" to LEAP 15 (your current).
    A missing GRUB entry though would probably require manually re-creating the Windows entry.

    Can you tell me how to determine the type?

    Do you have a system EFI partition? Check the output from
    Code:
    parted -l
    Do you have a partition mounted at "/boot/efi"?

    It's not obvious. Because under 42.3, i had 2 boots. I was choosing the OS with the Bios menu. I think it the part 9 because i do not see another reason to used an ext3 part.

    Based on that, you do not appear to have an EFI partition. And in that case there probably won't be anything mounted at "/boot/efi".

    I was asking, because that could be a possible reason for not being able to boot Windows. But clearly, that is not the problem.

    As the root user, can you run:

    Code:
    grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
    and see if that adds a Windows boot entry to your boot menu.

    Without seeing the 15.0 /etc/fstab, seeing all those Linux native partitions suggests 42.3 might still be installed, but somehow missed in the 15.0 Grub menu. How did you make your move from 42.3 to 15.0? Online upgrade? Offline upgrade? Fresh installation? Reuse old partitions?

    nrickert, his paste of parted output got partially misaligned. He has first partition ESP FAT32.

    Yes, you are right. And I missed that.

    It leaves open the possibility that Windows is using UEFI booting while Leap 15.0 is using MBR booting. That would explain the problem with Windows.

    Asimov, please /usr/bin/susepaste the output from bootinfoscript. (It's an information gathering and formatting script.)
