openSuSE confirm formatting query
Wow, how scary does that sound? This screen is shown because we have been into the Expert Partitioner, and on exit it found that we are using a partition that is not going to be formatted. In this case that is not a problem, it is exactly what we want because the partition in question is the EFI Boot partition, and if we formatted it we would lose the Windows boot information. I click Yes and move on to the next step.
openSuSE Partitioning Confirmation
This is the confirmation of the partitioning layout. Note that the root partition is shown in red as a warning, because it is formatting an existing partition (the one which I created with gparted before starting the installer), and it shows /dev/sda2 being mounted to /boot/efi without being formatted. Oh, and you can also see here that I cleared the Separate Home Partition check-box.
openSuSE User Account Creation
Here you define the first user account. The most interesting bit of this screen is the “Automatic Login” check box. By default, openSuSE will boot directly to the desktop of the user defined here. Remove the check on this box if you want it to boot to a Login screen and enforce password controls.
