    I'm not sure about that.

    Note that it says "filesystem < 84". Checking the package description, the "filesystem" package gives the directory layout. And that recently changed with Tumbleweed. For example, with Tumbleweed "/bin" no longer exists as a separate directory and is instead a symlink to "/usr/bin". This might be a big problem for going back to Leap from current Tumbleweed.

    Perhaps a better plan would be to stay with Tumbleweed for now, and file a bug report. Perhaps that can persuade the kernel team to come up with a kernel for Leap 15.3 that supports your hardware.
    openSUSE Leap 15.4; KDE Plasma 5.24.4;
    testing Tumbleweed.

    Well, I tried to ignore the filesystem 84 thing when executing the zypper dup, and it broke the installation. In fact, it broke the system, and it is no longer useable. As I mentioned, it is really not a problem because this was an experimental installation in a separate partition that I don't need, so I can still boot into tumbleweed on another partition and work on that.

    I think for now I will just try and run tumbleweed and see how it goes.

    What about providing full info about hardware?

    1st solution: change installation image: https://github.com/openSUSE/mksusecd
    With your new hardware you'll need the newest kernel and possibly Mesa 3D.

    2nd solution: use SATA drive for Leap. May work.

    3rd solution: use SATA drive + add SATA controller.

    4th solution: PCIe lanes from CPU may not work, but these lanes from chipset may do.
