Are you installing in BIOS or in UEFI mode?
I don't know, to be honest. And I'm some 25 km's away from the system in question, so it's not easy to tell right now.
There are commands that could tell you this, but I'm not sure which.
You could try "efibootmgr". What I do not know is what it prints in BIOS mode.
OK. I'll try that tomorrow.
/dev/sda4 1.00 GiB FAT on /boot/efi
sda4 is too big, 500M is enough. Why you have it is a mystery, anyway.
I wouldn't know either, I got the system presented as is. Should I delete it?
No. You did not create it now?
No, I simply took the existing partitions.
Then my guess is that the old system was UEFI, but the new install was done in BIOS mode, so it asked for the extra BIOS partition.
Assuming that the machine is UEFI, I would make sure it is configured to boot in UEFI mode and legacy mode is disabled. And of course, the partition table must be GPT (fdisk -l can tell).
Why did the system boot on 42.3, and refuses it to boot from 15.2?
We don't know how your 42.3 was installed.
Here again, I don't really know. Must be way back.
"bootinfoscript" could have told you that. download from:
OK. Still learning after 20+ years of using (open)suse...
We all do :-)
