Assuming this message is actually a question, can you do an install
from a USB stick? Or if not, try the minimal install from a CD, or a
network install?
I can't boot from a usb stick.

Thanks all for your replies

I refurbish old comps for senior citizens with my friend who donated an
internal DVD drive and upgraded the memory, Now I caan install suse

Just another thought,
Just get a openSUSE-13.1-NET-i586.iso or openSUSE-13.1-NET-x86_64.iso
image, these are about 250MB, so fit on a cdrom.

After booting, point either to the official http-source, or a local
mirror. AFAICR the version of the net-boot-cdrom is irrelevant, it does
not have to match the installation source.
