They look fine as they are. “Do not install bootcode into MBR” just means that. It is telling you what the installer plans to do, which is to not use the MBR for boot code. There’s also a highlighted “install” there that you can click to change this choice. But at present it is what you want.
Same thing for “Install boot code into a partition with /boot”. That’s the choice the install is planning to use, and seems to be what you want. If you click the highlighted “do not install” then the installer will change its choice.
Note that if you click on the highlighted “Booting”, then you will see more choices (and perhaps be more confused, but you can exit from the additional choices without changing anything).
In a dual boot situation, I don’t want the bootcode to touch the MBR/GPT for Windows.( I assume the installer will discern if MBR or GPT )
And that is what selected.
I would like it in openSUSE /Boot or just in ‘/’.
And that is what is selected. If you have a separate “/boot” partition, then it is intending to install there. Otherwise it will install in the root partition (where “/boot” is just a directory in that partition). Either way, that should be good for EasyBCD. Your image shows that you do have a separate “/boot” partition.
Then what to use for selecting which OS to load at boot time.
The installer is probably going to set the active flag on “/boot”. And if it does that, then you will see a grub menu when booting where you can choose what to boot.
If you don’t want that, then click that “Booting” heading. You will see a box to set the active flag on the boot partition. If you uncheck that box, then it will leave Windows controlling the booting. And then you won’t be able to boot openSUSE until you complete your EasyBCD setup.
I should add that if you don’t uncheck that box, so you get a grub menu, you can easily go back and change that later (ask in a forum post, perhaps even this thread, if you need help on how to do that).
I am considering install on a GPT laptop, and still don’t want the bootcode ‘touching’ Windows boot area.
There you have a very different situation. If you have GPT partitioning with Windows, then you are using UEFI for booting. So the settings are all different from what you see in your image. Maybe ask about that one when you are ready. Best not to confuse things right now. One computer at a time.
