Help me Please
Hello Everyone

I am trying to install opensuse leap 15.0 to on my PC. Since I've dual graphics card( NVIDIA GTX 965m),there is green bar problem. That is, green bar starts but never ends. I've overcome this problem by writing nomodeset to Installation line upon installing opensuse(The real problem is the following). However, another problem occur; that is, I cannot select Opensuse or Windows/sda after I start my PC. It goes directly to Windows.
For information, I've done some partition at the installation. So,Windows's disk space decreased. I can see that decreased disk space but I cannot reach GRUB menu; in other words, I cannot open Linux.

I've tried to give detailed information on my problem.

What is the hardware you are using, manufacturer?
Did you install Opensuse UEFI? Is windows 10 using the default UEFI to boot?
What option did you select on Opensuse install for the installation of the bootloader (Grub)?
Boot the Opensuse install DVD/USB and open a terminal and run this command and post the output here: parted -l (Lower case Letter L, must be run as root)
When you run that command, do you see a partition labelled EFI? If so, mount it to see if you have any directory/file relating to Opensuse.

I am using Monster notebook. I've used a Usb to create installation files by RUFUS and I chose Uefi. How can I understand this"Is windows 10 using the default UEFI to boot?"
I ve just plug the USB and select installation. However,when I press the boot menu it says" Uefi: Usb name" In process I follow it goes directly installation and the menus look like different. I do not understand this also "What option did you select on Opensuse install for the installation of the bootloader (Grub)?" How can I understand it moreover,F7 key is used for boot in my PC.

Rufus can make stick wrong. Maybe you should try again following Universal USB Installer stick creation instructions for openSUSE:

When UEFI installation goes correctly, your BIOS will show a boot option that says opensuse, and so will your F7 boot screen.

Initial UEFI and MBR installation screens do look different. MBR screen has function key menu at the bottom. UEFI screen has only two menu choices at the bottom: C: command line, and E: edit entry. If you choose edit entry for installation you can remove splash=silent from linuxefi line and see more messages while installation loads.

I think I have used MBR since they are some F options in the installation menu such as F5 kernel, F1=help.What is the distictive difference between them? I mean I can install suse to my other computer LG A510 without any problem (I ve just click installation and proceed). If you can supply screenshots or a clear video link for dual graphics card installation I would be grateful.

With Windows on UEFI your Linux must also use UEFI to be able to boot either one from the same menu installed on the HD or SSD. Since you saw Fn menu options when you installed openSUSE you need to replace that non-UEFI openSUSE installation with a UEFI openSUSE installation.
