It should be possible to install in legacy BIOS mode on GPT. There was (is)
YaST2 bug that it defaults to installing bootloader on partition even on
GPT,
which does not work; so you need to make sure it is installed in MBR.

That's not true. There is (should, at least) bootcode added to the
protective MBR that can boot off GPT.

This is bnc#794126, I see it is marked as fixed, so hopefully it works now.

It did install generic MBR which tried to boot off active partition, but there
is no active partition with GPT.
