"Did I enjoyed my long awaited Tux immediately after that? Unfortunately, no. Instead, there were 4 disappointments which I faced with. But let me describe them one-by-one.

"1. Live USB does not work.

"Yes! Simple as that! Live USB created with guidance from OpenSuSE site does not work! I think this is because CD image contains file syslinux.cfg, while USB image should have isolinux.cfg. It is not possible to simply rename the file, because USB drive is mounted read-only after dd-rescue.

"Actually, command dd-rescue surprised me a little. It was the first time I saw it in recommendations. Usually dd command is used. Will it work this time? I re-created my Live USB and rebooted once again. Result was more promising that time, because at least I was able to see boot menu! But soon after making my choice I had... black screen with errors."
