grub2 has problems.

Why are you still using it? I have more than a dozen 12.3 installations. None have Grub2 installed. All have Grub (Legacy) installed. Default selections cannot be optimal for everyone. The openSUSE installer recognizes this, and allows you to choose from among several bootloaders before package installation ever begins. And if you don't then, you can do the same thing in same manner after installation with YaST, either ncurses version or X version. Changing to Grub Legacy can also be done without YaST, using zypper, the Grub shell, and if necessary to tweak the boot menu content, your favorite text editor. If the graphical boot menu doesn't fit but you want to use it, see and fix yours.
