I'll add a note to this on my experience with 12.3 RC2.

I installed 12.3 RC2 on a Win8 box. Windows 8 is on "/dev/sda" and opensuse is
on "/dev/sdb".

Everything was okay, except that there was no grub2-efi menu item to boot
Windows.

It looks as if os-prober was only probing the one disk where opensuse is
installed, and ignoring the other disk.

I later mounted the efi partition from the Windows disk:

mkdir /mnt/efi
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/efi

and then I ran "grub2-mkconfig" to update the grub-efi configuration. That
added the needed entry to boot Windows.
