Description of various tests with repair system

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:28.0) Gecko/20100101

Sony Vaio SVE1713A6EW
Installation of openSUSE 13.1 from DVD, update repos enabled during
Following the system recommendation the W8 data partition was reduced, and
bootloader was set to /dev/sda3
System boots fine using UEFI and secure boot. Sounds pretty perfect up to here.
From the GRUB boot menu, W8 was chosen for boot.
Afterwards, GRUB was never displayed again, In fact I was unable to boot oS13.1

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install openSUSE 13.1 from DVD
2. After several boots, boot W8
3. No option anymore to start openSUSE

Several attempts were made with the repair system to enable boot from sda3
again, see attachment.
Is there a way that grub can be reinstalled, e.g. with
grub2-install /dev/sda3
