OMG This is so frustrating! I go to the trouble of creating a usb installation disk in case I need to do a system re-install and when I try to do it I can boot to the usb but after that the options all seem screwed up. The installation medium is unsigned there is no option for a usb installation the other options don’t work except a network install which I don’t want. That’s why I bloody made the usb for. I followed the usb creation wiki to the letter using fdisk and dd.
Can somebody please assist?
Using tumbleweed Linux t420 4.14.14-1-default #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Jan 17 09:26:10 UTC 2018 (eef6178) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Although this is outdated too, current Imagewriter will not ask for the root password on start, but only if you click on “Write”. (the program itself can run as user since years, as mentioned, it only asks for root privileges when required)
This time I downloaded openSUSE-Tumbleweed-DVD-x86_64-Snapshot20180124-Media.iso. The problem starts after boot, when I select installation it errors with unsigned image? The only option that works in the ancient installer is net install. The other options are cd and hdd?
Excuse me, but I have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about.
The openSUSE DVD installer neither has a net install option, nor a cd option (only “Boot from Harddisk”, “Install” and “Upgrade”).
It looks like this: https://en.opensuse.org/images/1/19/Leap_bootmenu_42.2.png
(this is actually Leap 42.2, Tumbleweed has a different background, otherwise it’s the same)
Are you sure that’s not your BIOS/EFI firmware that you’re seeing here?
Maybe post a screenshot, also from your “unsigned image” error.
Yes I get this screen, then I choose Installation, next comes the hd:/content : Invalid signature Installation aborted error.
Then I’m offered to install from hd:/// or cd:// or hd:/ or http://download.opensuse.org/tumbleweed/repo/oss/ or enter another URL
