Installing opensuse 12.3, it still does not work on second hdd !!

( Remarkable:
first report for this bug was from 28.03.2010, yesterday was the 3 anniversary)

Starting Situation:
Acer Aspire V3-771G
Intel Core I7-3630M (64Bit) 32GB RAM

HDD0 : Crucial Micron RealSSD C400 256GB (MTFDDAK256MAM)
HDD1 : Toshiba MQ01ABD100 (1TB)

On HDD0: a preinstalled Windows 8 on HDD0
on HDD1: formated by Windows 8

This was the original situation.

I tried to install opensuse *12.2* on HDD1 by shortening the
Windows-HDD1-partition and creating new EXT4-partitions and a swap partition.

This installation failed. (known situation: see me original bug report 795838)

After deleting Windows 8 and formating the hdds, the installation of suse 12.2
failed again ( same as 12.3, it tried it at this moment).
(Because Installation F3->"Text mode" is not text mode, I can not tell you the

I tried again with F5->save settings, than Installation on opensuse 12.2 works.

After having installed opensuse 12.2 on hdd0 and parts of hdd1, I tried to
install opensuse 12.3 on the free parts of hdd1 and got the same results as
for the installation of 12.2.

- After reading the discussion to this bug, I think, bugzilla should have an
additional Status "annoyed by discussions" because "Resolved" normally means
something different.

- If it is not possible to repair bugs in a boot process in the time over 3
years, normally it would be a good reason to think about the general design.

- Since 1996, I used Suse as 2. operation system behind Windows on different
PCs. The installation has been easy ( at least since V 4.4.1)
Today, one needs at least experience or better: insider knowledge to handle
Good for winning new linux users ?

- Maybe, there are reasons to use disk-by-id for fixed hdds, but until yet,I
found none. For industrial use it's a curse.
