    Default No Valid EFI partition.

    Hi
    I note that my situation may not be unique.
    Recent Lenovo laptop, came with W10.
    I have added a 1 TB WD Green ssd to complement the UMIS 256 GB NVMe.

    Added, and removed LinuxMint as SECURE BOOT.
    Added and removed PClinuxOS as LEGACY BOOT.

    Installed Leap 15.3 with SECURE BOOT ENABLED.

    I have made several attempts to install a BOOT manager to achieve DUAL booting,
    I have only achieved DUEL booting, it will boot from the USB I installed from.

    Execution of command "[["/usr/sbin/shim-install", "--config-file=/boot/grub2/grub.cfg"]]" failed.
    Exit code: 1
    Error output: No valid EFI partition


    I change to REMOVE MBR as seen in another post/answer.

    Default Re: No Valid EFI partition. SORTA SORTED ie: SOLVED.

    EEeeerrrrrrrrr

    I may have enough egg on my face to make an omelette.

    I had tried Paragon in W10, NoGo, Gparted wont install and run.
    So YAST partitioner and gingerly poke and prod...

    EDIT to Mount as /boot/efi I believe.
    Save.


    Switch to BOOT MANAGER,
    MBR remove, NVR unchecked.

    AND Voila it rebooted with the OpenSuSE option available.


    So SOLVED possibly.

    That's part of the computer experience.

    Yes, that is what was missing (based on your error message).

    I'm glad you found it for yourself. That's the best way of learning.
    openSUSE Leap 15.3; KDE Plasma 5.18.6;
