the snapshot boot is confusing. if i remember you select one of the
snapshots, but the next option is something like "boot opensuse" i.e. no
mention of snapshot anymore. If you keep trying to select the snapshot
(which appears the natural choice) you go round in circles. does that mean that after seeing this screen:

...I press escape to return to the original boot menu and just select the
default boot option as if I wasn't using a snapshot? If so, how can I
verify, after booting, that I'm in the snapshot?

i have just tested, i dont get the "if ok..." dialouge but have seen it
(it may come from selecting the wrong entry).
1 - from menu select roll back to snapshot
2 - select snapshot
3 - the screen now shows "bootable snapshot #num" as the top entry, second
entry is "boot tumbleweed" -< select the *second* entry

you will now get warning during boot that a file cannot be written.

Well that isn't very intuitive! It does indeed work though (none of my
snapshots result in a useable desktop but I guess that's a separate problem).
Many thanks for testing this Nicholas, that was kind of you.

Kind regards,
