Re: Current Overview Of 'Secure Boot' By Matthew Garrett

The issue for that system is moot now since my son needed the system and has taken it to his apartment elsewhere. I don't have access anymore.

I believe the one that bit me was the one you described as #3. I found a bugzilla item ultimately after reading the "how to" articles on opensuse.org where other people were having difficulties with dual boot. »bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=781688

I tried a few legacy (non-UEFI) type installs, too, and it would consistently fail at first boot. I succeeded once in my several attempts (perhaps that was the time when I said "use grub not grub2" for the bootloader, but I can't recall for sure now. I did succeed in with a UEFI install with just opensuse 12.2 once, but was testing and that install got blown away with subsequent testing.

I also tried an install from the opensuse 12.2 KDE-live CDROM, too, with no better results.

I'll be ordering up components soon for a new build for myself. Not sure if I will go with the same motherboard I got for my son's build (Asus P8z77-V pro) as my requirements are different than his were. Linux will be a hard requirement for me, and if I can't make it work I'll be looking for help.

If I had had more time, I might have tried another Linux distribution, but I'm used to opensuse so was sticking with that for the recent build attempts.

Thanks for letting me know, I installed Ubuntu 12.04, and Mint 13 without hassle on a 3770/P8Z77-V setup, along side Win 7

Just to confirm your success, UEFI or legacy intalls?

I'm not doubting that this just opensuse installer faults.

Also, I did flash the mobo bios to the latest available from Asus.

Just FYI: I have 15 Z77 boards with the latest BIOS to include Secure Boot and successfully loaded Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 on all 15 as workstations for devs. They have two options to boot: through the UEFI boot choice menu or Grub's.

We use Ubuntu to run VM's and Win 7 for Visual Studio, not my choice For some reason, managing these clowns includes being their IT in this company... whatever, it beats submitting purchase invoices and dealing with the lowest bitter in computer science.

Good info. I had considered for my own future build going with Linux-only boot with windows 7 restricted to a virtual machine. However, I did like the Asus A.I. windows utility for the P8z77-V Pro mobo when I saw it. It was fairly easy to set the system to overclock (something I have no previous experience with). I used a core i7 3770k unlocked for the build with a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO chip cooler.
