Hello openSUSE peeps; I have installed both the tumbleweed and leap most recent versions several times with no success at getting it to boot afterwards without using the boot linux system in the menu for the installer on my usb stick.
Windows is installed on the 750 u.2 drive and openSUSE AND Solus are installed on the 2nd Samsung 850 EVO drive.
Windows boots no problem via F11 Boot Menu and so does Solus; I choose one or the other. I used rufus and universal usb and imageusb several times with every setting to get it to work. Some times the installer would crash or most times the install was only bootable through the usb installer. When I installed Solus, I noticed that it had something checked for it to place something in the nvme0n1 drive which is I assume how it is available in the F11 boot menu.
Any way for me to get openSUSE to show either in the UEFI/BIOS menu or the F11 boot menu?
Bios Settings I have tried include: legacy+UEFI, UEFI with Windows 10 whql support and without.
If I have it in legacy+UEFI I can choose the Samsung drive to boot first but it doesn’t; says no OS installed or something like that.

Thanks in advance for any help you may provide; I have googled for help over the last week to no avail. :’(
Thank You So Very Much for posting all that information and links!
After pouring over most of the linked info and trying several things again along with I think up to 10 re-installs :beat-up: both tumbleweed and leap; I clicked on a link referenced at the bottom of one of the links you kindly provided.:\
In that link contained all the knowledge and wisdom of the universe or just the simple instructions to not format existing efi/boot partition but just to simply mount it rotfl!
Since I am new to UEFI, I had no idea of what I was doing and installed like it was 2010.
All is glorious now and I Thank You from the bottom of my stomach which is way more important than a tough ol’ heart.
