--- Comment #1 from Jiri Srain <jsrain@xxxxxxxx> ---
I see your point, however, I ted to close this bug as it is now. Why?

The missing parts (e.g. which device BL will be written to) is already covered
by other reports you submitted this week. There is no need to have more of them
and, if it is included in the BL config, there is no need to duplicate it in
another screen.

There are checks in YaST that prevent misconfiguration. However, given the
amount of unknowns, which YaST cannot detect, there will never be a way to do
full validation of any configuration. Even the case you present above is
questionable, is it showed in the discussion in the other bug.

Bootloader configuration will always be kind-of expert tool - simply because
booting is hard. Majority of users, who want to use Linux, don't need multiple
distros - they need one and possibly additionally Windows. The important part
is that the default proposed configuration works in such cases.

Closing as INVALID, I feel that this bug just duplicates the information in
other bugs. I would suggest to wait until and how the other ones are resolved
and then report what's missing.
