Created an attachment (id=542196)
--> (http://bugzilla.novell.com/attachment.cgi?id=542196)
Transcript of shim installation, etc.

Manually installing the shim actually worked. I have attached a transcript.

I'm not sure why it failed during the install. I seem to recall that
efibootmgr showed entries numbered up through 9 at one stage, so perhaps some
limit was hit.

Looking in that script I see a section
"# Delete old entries from the same distributor."
I was mistakenly blaming the firmware for that. With the failure of my attempt
to change the distributor, that deleted the entry for my working 12.3 install
on the same computer.
