I had Kubuntu 18.04 LTS and Windows 10 dual boot desktop with UEFI - GPT partition table settings. Both of them are on a 256 GB SSD. Each one is 100gb in size rest is empty.
Both of them were working fine and life was awesome, till I decided to mess it up and install opensuse on top of kubuntu.
I deleted the kubuntu partition and installed opensuse 15 leap one top of it 64 bit using the btrfs partition type.
There were no errors shown during the installation process. Last notification shown before the restart was,
installation was successful and you need to reboot the system ( something like that, no the exact words).
Now the thing is the machine is stuck at the below window and I dont know what to do next.
Windows works as if nothing has happened to it.
Window now shows -
GNU GRUB version 2.02
Minimal BASH-list line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions.
Please someone guide me on what to do to keep the windows os + the newly installed opensuse.
Please let me know if anymore info is needed from me to fix the issue.
I created a bootable Ubuntu pendrive and installed then boot-repair application. I generated two log files, one before fixing the issue with the software, and one after fixing the issue.
Even after fixing the bootloader with this application, it did not solve the problem. I am still stuck at the same window as above.
I forgot to mention that I chose to enable the encryption on the installation partition. Hope this info helps.
I have both the log files. I dont see a way to attach it to the reply.
I have one computer where the UEFI system has too much memory. It works fine booting openSUSE. But if I were to install something else, say kubuntu, on top of that, then it would still try to boot openSUSE and give me similar message to what you are seeing.
The way around that, for me, would be to hit F12 during boot to get the BIOS boot menu. And then I could select which system to boot into. That’s a short term fix. The long term fix is for me to get into BIOS settings and change the boot order there.
I don’t know whether that is your problem. If your computer is a Lenovo, then there’s a good chance that it is. In any case, it is something to try.
I am unable to use any live cd of opensuse leap 15 KDE (950MB) version also the Rescue LiveCD (650MB) version.
both of them stuck at the same step after the leap icon flashes for sometime.
I have the snapshot of the errors. but cant paste the image as its 2 mb in size. allowed size seems to be 512kb only.
I have tried changing the boot order. it does not help as the option for the opensuse is absent.
Mine is a desktop computer intel 8th gen i5 cpu, 8gb ddr4 ram, gigabyte z370 hd3p mobo.
Can you check the EFI partition? In particular, is there a subdirectory “\EFI\opensuse” there (capitalization might be different). If that directory is present, can you give a file listing (“ls” command in linux) of that directory.
