--- Comment #7 from Jean-Daniel Dodin <jdd@xxxxxxxxx> ---
Finally I can boot Leap using the following:

add a folder with any name (mine is "32") next to the opensuse and windows one
in /boot/efi/EFI

copy there any 32 bits grub.efi. Mine is from
grub2-i386-efi-2.02~beta2-55.1.i586.rpm, but any may work.

add next to the grub.efi file a grub.cfg file wit something like

set btrfs_relative_path="yes"
search --fs-uuid --set=root 28efb6d2-1287-4f29-b38b-b383b89d6568
set timeout=10

menuentry "Jean-Daniel's openSUSE Leap 42.1 nomodeset" {

linux /boot/vmlinuz nomodeset
initrd /boot/initrd

do not copy the dots, do not forget the braces {}, adapt to what the previous
steps said about your disk/partition.

you have to find a way to register this in the nvram, using easyefi (windows)
or any efi capable rescue disk (32bits!). I couldn't find a way to write to the
EFI partition from Windows.
