Put your cd/dvd in cd/dvd drive. restart the computer. Enter BIOS change boot sequence to Optical Drive as first, then hard disk as second. Sae settings and BIOS would restart. It would straight boot to OpenSuse cd/dvd.

In some laptop without changing boot device order in BIOS one change with some keys. e.g. F10 or F12.

If all these doesn't helps read your laptop manual.

hello dear veerain

many thanks for the hints

fixed - or better said: i found the issue.

the dvd was burned on another machine.
now i try to burn the dvd on the same machine - where i need to run it

greetings

btw : probably i need a new bios.
but this may be not too easy - since the notebook probably does not run with every bios!?

what can i do here?

BIOS is provided by Manufacturer website usually in support/drivers section. Also most brands provide BIOS update for few years only.
