This is not support - it is tool for tracking bugs in the software. If you need
support, you should contact openSUSE forums.

openSUSE fails to boot because it fails to mount one of partitions, which is
referenced incorrectly (due to changed disk ID). Any heuristic, which tries to
determine whether a filesystem is necessary or not, is only a heuristics and
may fail. You may remove windows from your fstab if it is not needed (or stop
mounting it on boot).

Additionally, the bug does not seem to refer to GRUB or bootloader at all - it
is about systemd mounting the partitions.


About the repair tool: It is about having someone, who develops and
(especially) maintains such tool. You are free to convince anyone in the
openSUSE community to do so - or even do it yourself - and I'm pretty sure that
if such tool works reliably, it will be added to the medium of the next
release. However, openSUSE is a community project, and not a product owned by
SUSE or Novell.


Given that it is expected that mounting a partition will fail if the device
identification in fstab changes, I don't really see what the bug to fix is. I
also don't see why booting e.g. by device or by label fails for you.
