If you have a GPT formatted hard drive, you may need to boot the openSUSE DVD in uef mode. What is on your hard drive now, do you know? For help on GPT have a look here: https://forums.opensuse.org/content/111-partitioning-hard-disk-during-install.html, GPT info appears halfway through the article. Further, you may need to use the kernel load option nomodeset. I have a bash script that works with the new Grub 2, though I can’t say I have worked with UEFI, GPT and the need to use nomodeset all at the same time. This bash script would require a system that will boot and a network connection to download but does not need a desktop to load.

There have been reports of some versions of memtest showing errors where
other versions show none. There is a bugzilla on that, I believe.

did you try to boot your installer DVD in UEFI mode, as advised by jdmcdaniel3 ?
That should become possible by entering the BIOS setup before the booting from the DVD acutally takes place.
It may be even better (!!), if you could try to boot from a Linux live CD (openSUSE, or GParted, or …),
in order to post the output of the command line tool parted -
i.e. after having booted from the live CD: become root, then, in a terminal, call ‘parted’, say ‘print’, then say ‘quit’,
and then copy the output from that terminal, and post it here.
Boot live CD.
Open a terminal.
Become root by saying ‘su -’ (if needed, the root password usually is available from the web page providing the image of the live CD).
Then say ‘quit’.
Copy the output, and paste it to a text file accessible by your windows 7.
Then post here.
