You only have linux and rescue and no graphics options of the same.
@DarkMagus237 when it looks like it’s stopped, if you press ctrl+alt_F4 you should get an output screen on what the system is doing, what errors? Maybe a screenshot with a camera posted online and the link posted back? You can use SUSE Paste please set the image to ‘not expire’ in the drop-down.
@arvidjaar : I indeed tried the various boot options, but there is no failsafe. I’ll check the 12.3 DVD soon.
@malcolmlewis : the problem is, the computer reboots automatically after the error messages, not giving me enough time to read them. But I can try capturing it with a video, if I’m lucky. I’ll check and post the results.
Oh That’s pretty bad, it means ELILO is incompatible with your motherboard. Please open bug report on bugzilla.novell.com, specify your exact motherboard model and BIOS version. Also please test current 12.3 (although I do not expect any difference as it is still using the same ELILO). Please post bug number here.
As I see you have two options assuming grub2 works
try to install using grub2 from USB stick. I do not have experience with creating USB installation media, someone else hopefully can tell more
install in legacy BIOS mode, create USB stick or grub2 recsue ISO with grub2 bootloader, boot using it in EFI mode and finally fix your bootloader
Unfortunately, to verify whether it works we already need Linux installed. It may be possible to create grub2 image with RAM disk containing all modules and try to boot Linux from installation DVD using it. But it needs time to prepare.
