Rebooted to blank (black) screen with message as follows:

Is it possible to save this, and if so, how? Have left computer in this condition awaiting answer.
While you're waiting for someone who knows this better than I do . . .
This was after a zypper up or zypper dup? Or are you using snapshot media?
The shim is bootstrap code used with EFI/UEFI firmware. It sounds like you are using EFI/UEFI and possibly Secure Boot. (I don't suppose you've been twiddling with this in your BIOS or recently installed a different linux distro or a different non-openSUSE kernel?) Your description sounds like grub2 was not properly installed. Could be a number of reasons.
Here is a forum thread which dealt with that problem.
Or this from the SUSE doc's . . .
