New and interesting linux problem today: the opensuse installer reporting Your system states that it requires an EFI boot setup and stating that the only way to install opensuse linux is to throw all msdos partitions away (including an already installed Windows 7) and start with GPT partitions. Windows 7 was installed with msdos style partitions and the plan was to create a multiboot setup without EFI boot (since we have some bad experiences with multiboot and EFI). So the solution suggested by the opensuse installer was a bad choice. We decided to find out where the installer got the idea that the system stated something and changed the boot order in the BIOS to prefer legacy boot from network/cd/harddisk, disabling EFI boot options completely.
