    It turns out that most new BIOS will not boot the internal drive in legacy mode - only UEFI mode.

    You have to boot the 15.1 USB drive in UEFI mode to install it on the SSD in UEFI mode (mine is a nvme m.2 SSD).

    Thar works perfectly and it added opensuse to the UEFI boot options.

    BINGO!!! You have saved the day!!! That was it! Changed the Boot from BOTH to UEFI and ran the installation. The installation when complete asked to reboot on the new SSD and it worked!!! Thanks very much!!! Now I can get some real work done!!! Thanks again!

    1. Update your BIOS.
    2. Do not use Unetbootin. Read openSUSE manual for details how to make a bootable DVD or USB stick.
    3. Which SSD?
    OP said nothing about SSD type.
    In ordinary systems NVME SSD is only available with a UEFI booting.
    It is possible to use NVME SSD with an old systems with an extra efforts.
