I am totally fresh with opensuse, and I am trying to dual boot Windows7 and openSUSE12.3.
But there is a problem.
Windows7 is already installed in the second primary partition (the first one is the Recovery, hidden.), now I want
to install opensuse12.3 in a logical partition. During this time, I found some options that I don’t know how to deal with:
（bootloader is GRUB2）
Boot from Master Boot Record
Boot from Root Partition
Boot from Boot Partition
Boot from Extended Partition
Custom Boot Partition

on the last partition I created and let grub2 decide where to put it.
But before going to the installation I first checked where it wants to go
and I saw it choose the extended partition.
When installation was finish, it took over the booting for all the os (win 7 and tumbleweed)
I am new to grub2 and this is the only thing I can say as I observed how the openSUSE 12.3
One thing more is when I used the grub2-efi there was no choices and when the boot loader
was installed, openSUSE tumbleweed still managed the os loading process but I can seem to
have the nice animated bootsplash of openSUSE 12.3 and it is booting via text mode.
GRUB2-EFI is so good. But it’s a pity that I don’t have the Windows Installation DVD. The OEM version
was built in the HDD. It seems that the GRUB2-EFI could be available only if I buy a DVD and install my
