I missed responding to comment 15:

Related to https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=815170 ?

Yes, it is very likely to be related.

I notice in 815170#c12 that shim.efi will be copied to /EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi

I am not sure that works. After my failed install of 13.1M1, the BIOS
boot menu included an item to boot my second hard drive, where I had
manually done that copy. And that did not work. When shim.efi is copied
there, how does it know where the rest of the files are? Or should the entire
directory be copied?

While I am off-topic, grub.cfg somewhere uses "set root='hd1,gpt4' to reference
the second drive. My tests show that should be 'hd2,gpt4'. Apparently the
BIOS device numbering puts the DVD before the second hard drive. (Not a big
deal, since the uuid check overrides this).
