Re: [opensuse] uefi boot on asus 1225B with only openSUSE

some friend of me asked me to install ubuntu on his asus 1225b computer,
wipping all trace of windows.

So I inserted the unbuntu 13.04 disk, installed without problem... and
couldn't boot it, error "no system found".

This is uefi bios, gpt disk.

So I inserted the openSUSE 13.1 dvd... and... same punishment!!

I tried all what passed in my mind: verifying /boot/EFI partition was
mounted (it was), trying to set a boot flag (not available in efi/gpt
system), even trying to add manually efi system files ("Windows Boot
Manager.efi" or "Shellx64.efi" as the bios seemed to ask for.. nope.
Even tried ELILO without more success.

I now try to install with standard MBR and grub2 (non efi), and hope to

but I would really like to install with efi/gpt system, let only for the
record :-))

any idea?

(I wonder if an double boot system would have worked, any people testing
thies on this pretty common computer?)

I turned off EFI as I only had one OS to install (openSUSE). If you don't intend to ever use MS again That may be the way to go.
