I’m new to linux and I’m trying to do the transition from M$, but I have difficulties in booting & installing. Can you give me a hand? TA
I’d downloaded OpenSuse 15.3 from here: https://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/15.3/iso/openSUSE-Leap-15.3-DVD-x86_64-Current.iso.mirrorlist
According to this (https://en.opensuse.org/Create_installation_USB_stick), I’d used UNetbootin to write the image to the USB stick. The process went ok - it didn’t yield any errors.
I’m using a HP Z800 workstation gen 2 (2 Xeons x5690; 18GB ddr3; 120GB Kingston SA400S37120G SSD (on SATA5); 32GB Kingston USB3 stick). (System BIOS 786G5 v03.57; boot block date 11/10/09; there is no setting regarding UEFI/GPT in the bios)
In BIOS, I’d used the following configurations, but every time I get this message: "BOOTMGR is missing Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart"
(1) Storage > Storage Options > SATA emulation: IDE
(1) Storage > Storage Options > SATA emulation: RAID+AHCI
Now, I don’t have a USB2 stick big enough to fit the 4.4GB iso… what do you recommend me to do?
PS I will try to post this on the HP forum too
PPS to make things worst, I would really really need a fast solution
