Having fun installing OpenSuse 42.3 and getting GRUB where I want it.
My PC is older (BIOS) with 2 SATA disks.
Disk 1 (sda) holds the O/S’s and software, Disk 2 holds data
If I boot from Disk 1 I go straight to Windows which is fine. Essentially the boot on this disk is as Windows install left i
If I boot from Disk 2 I get GRUB from OpenSuse 42.2 and I can boot various Linuxes (excepting rebuilding GRUB misses some out) or Windows and this is how I want it.
In previous installs I just tell the installer to use the MBR and since BIOS has put Disk 2 first it’s always gone in there as desired. But with 42.3 it doesn’t seem to want to install to MBR of Disk 2. Playing with options suggests it may go to MBR of Disk 1 but that isn’t what I want.
I simply want to put GRUB into MBR of Disk 2 nice and easily as before so if BIOS boots from Disk 2 I get GRUB, if from Disk 1 I go straight to Windows which is handy for those silly Windows updates with several reboots.
I really don’t understand EFI/UEFI or other. It’s an older PC (Core i7 720 or something like that), it all works fine so far.
Any ideas, especially if it sorts the issue with GRUB in 42.2 that doesn’t see other Linux’s properly (that’s in another thread but no working solution yet.)
