I’m not sure where to put this; I’ve never been able to install 13.2, I’ve wasted a TON of bandwidth (I have to pay for it after a certain amount) and dozens of hours of time; I’ve checked the MD5 sums & have re-downloaded the ISO countless of times, all to no avail. I was using SLED 11.x but couldn’t stomach all the changes I was making to the base system; I felt, I might as well be running Opensuse; however, I could not get it to work. So, after installing Windows, I was hoping to find the next release of Opensuse and found it was 42.1!?!
I must have missed something and I cannot find any clear explanation about 42.1. Will it install similar to 13.2? Personally, I hope not.
Why “42.1” and not “14.1”? If it’s a rolling release, why have any numbers at all? Will there be a charge if it’s based on SLE? If not, how does SuSE see itself surviving (and thus, Opensuse) if I can get the same OS without paying? I paid for 3 years of SLED, so I’m not afraid of paying; however, when I converted a friend’s or customer’s system from Windows to Linux, I normally put them on Opensuse, since it is free and I like its ease-of-use.
The Portal site for Leap really doesn’t contain a whole heck of a lot of information.
Regardless of what I do, 13.2 will not recognize the boot sector (either UEFI or not); it’s the single OS on an mSATA 512GB hard drive; 13.1 installs flawlessly, as did 12.x. I can install Fedora, Debian, OpenBSD, SuSE 11 SP3 & SuSE 12 & MS Windows 7.1; however, 13.2 has never installed.
Are you saying that after install, you cannot boot?
Note that UEFI does not use a boot sector. It uses loader programs in the UEFI partition.
Or maybe you are getting an error message from the partitioner. That happens when the drive has been GPT partitioned, then converted to MBR partitioning, but leaving behind remnants of the GPT partition table. It is possible to fix that.
