Bug ID: 964423
Summary: os-prober incorrectly detects Windows partition (data
partition) as "Windows 7 (loader)" when system
partition already exists
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Distribution
Version: Leap 42.1
Hardware: Other
OS: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Bootloader
Assignee: jsrain@xxxxxxxx
Reporter: fcrozat@xxxxxxxx
QA Contact: jsrain@xxxxxxxx
Found By: ---
Blocker: ---

On one of my dual-boot system (with Windows 10 installed as upgrade), I get two
Windows boot menu entry from os-prober.

First entry is "Windows 10 (loader)", which is properly pointing to Windows
"System partition" (with /bootmgr).
Second entry is "Windows 7 (loader)", which is the "second" Windows partition
(containing Windows installation). However, this second partition should never
be booted, since there is a "Windows system partition" already (and trying to
boot from there won't work).

As noted on
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GRUB#Windows_installed_in_BIOS-MBR_mode ,
it would be better to not add this second entry at all, if a Windows system
partition is already detected.
