@comment#41: it's a bad idea to use old autoyast profiles, as all the defaults
not specified therein are taken from the current tools.

For the partitioning: why can't we fake a "geometry" that allows for e.g. 4k
alignment AND looks sane to ancient BIOSes?

About my overall attitude: I'm sick of looking at "grub bugs", with a new
installation, to a new disk, with a huge swap as the first partition. Even
better with only a "Windows extended" next, and everything else logical within
that,
set up for failure.
