Re: [opensuse-support] Just how crippled is 15.0 DVD rescue boot known to be?

If you are talking about the rescue system included in the installation
DVD, that one is a small text only Linux system.

However, there is a "Live rescue CD" at
<https://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/15.0/live/>, and this
one should be a full blown XFCE system, designed for usb sticks.


On boot with manually typed grub stanza I changed the Grub timeout in YaST2,
which
inexplicably created a new initrd identical to the existing one, but did fix
HD
booting at least until I install OS X again.

Changing the grub2 timeout in yast is known to force writing it all
again to disk ;-)
