Leap 15 don't boot

I have two hard drive .
Sda drive include three ext4 partition ( root, home , swap) that i install leap 15 on this drive and on sdb drive i installed windows 10 with MBR. When in install leap 15 on sda the bootloader don’t detect windows 10 and also leap 15 does’nt load.

It’s a bit hard to guess the problem without more information.

I’ll guess anyway. You say that Windows use MBR. So I will guess that you installed openSUSE to use UEFI. And the two of them don’t mix.

It would help if you can provide the output from

parted -l

You can boot the installer to the rescue system to get that output.

If you are able to boot Windows, then an alternative might be to use the “diskpart” command in Windows. I think “diskpart partition” will give the needed output. But you might need to run that on each disk. (Sorry, I’m not a Windows person).

Here the output of parted -l

My guess was wrong. You did not install as UEFI.

I’m now guessing that “/dev/sda1” is your root partition. Correct me if that is wrong.

Do you remember how booting was setup? Is it to boot from the MBR or to boot from the root partition?


You will note I added code tags to your above message.

This makes it easier for others to read and therefore easier for them to help you.

When you provide such output, we prefer if you insert the output between code tags.

To get code tags, when creating a message, in the message Editor, there are icons above the message window. Middle row, third from right, is the “#” symbol. Click on it, it will put your cursor between code tags, and then paste.

Thank you

… and, good luck, I meant to add.

Thank you Fraser_bell & nrickert

/dev/sda1 is my root partition and I boot from root partition.

I solve it.
I change the order of hd in bios setting and it works fine.

I have a question :
Is it better to have separate /boot partition from /root or not ?

openSUSE does NOT need a separate /boot partition and booting from the /root partition is ok in general. I have not used a separate /boot for openSUSE for the last ten years or so…
So, unless you have special requirements, I think you are good to go with your current setup.
Have fun!
