It seems that the penguin theme has been removed in grub2 So no more
penguins while booting.

I understand he saw them on the DVD boot. That’s not grub2, right? It
could even be EFI.

But syslinux and grub1 both use “gfxboot” to display the graphical boot menu. (open)SUSE’s grub package contains a patch for that.
That’s why they look the same.
And the Penguins theme is contained in gfxboot’s openSUSE branding (“gfxboot-branding-openSUSE”).
Grub2 OTOH has its own implementation for showing a graphical boot menu.

Is it possible to end up with a broken system when switching back and
