(In reply to Steffen Winterfeldt from comment #43)
Thanks for testing this so thoroughly!

Could you please run 'parti' (install on Tumbleweed or get it from
software.opensuse.org) on the usb images you tried? Particularly the working
ones you got with Rufus would be interesting.

Please attach the results here.

I think I should mention that,

a) All of the 5 points in comment #42 are talking about USB stick made with
`dd` command except for point No. 2.

b) Rufus has two modes for making USB stick from ISO image. One is "ISO Image
mode", and the other is "DD image mode".

If I got it correct, ISO Image mode first makes a bootable USB stick by
partitioning and formatting it into proper scheme and then copies the content
of the DVD ISO image into a proper partition on the USB drive, so that this USB
stick can be used to boot both in Legacy and EFI mode for installing a system.

While the DD Image mode has the same mechanism as `dd` command in Linux to
create a installation USB media from DVD ISO installation image.

Do you still think it's valuable to have the partition table of the one made
with Rufus?
