Bug ID: 1017737
Summary: [doc] [grub2] Location of 'boot code options tab'
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Distribution
Version: Leap 42.2
Hardware: Other
OS: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Documentation
Assignee: fs@xxxxxxxx
Reporter: richard.bos@xxxxxxxxx
QA Contact: fs@xxxxxxxx
Found By: ---
Blocker: --- <span class="guimenu">Boot Code Options</span> Tab

This section seems misplaced, it's part of the tab that is described in 12.3.1

As such it seems logical to explain the additional settings right after section
12.3.1. It would prevent a lot of scrolling up and down between the two
sections ( for the screenshot of the tab ).

[] Set Active Flag in Partition Table for Boot Partition
Activates the partition that contains the boot loader. Some legacy operating
systems (such as Windows) can only boot from an active partition.

- Remark: what is the advice for Linux (openSUSE) based systems? Should the
following text be added:
"For Linux (openSUSE) based systems this setting does not need to be enabled."

[] Write Generic Boot Code to MBR
Replaces the current MBR with generic, operating system independent code.

- Remark: what is the advice: should this be enabled for Linux (openSUSE) based
systems? Is it possible to add such an advice to the documentation.
