Dual boot Windows-7 and OpenSUSE 13.x using NST\nst_grub.mbr

#1
I have not built a dual boot system in some time,
and my last attempt successfully installed
C:\NST\nst_grub.mbr on the Windows-7 C:\
and I used EasyBCD to build a dual boot menu on my
Windows startup screen. I prefer this over the default that Linux 13.1 builds.
How can I duplicate this for my OpenSUSE 13.1 install?
What do I need to create C:\NST\nst_grub.mbr
for EasyBCD ?

Hello qawtbh,

You just need to create a GRUB2 entry in EasyBCD, from the Linux section of Add/Remove Entries.

I removed all the entries, then created a Windows-7 entry, then grub2 entry. I let BCD find the partitions.
Still, when I reboot, it goes straight to Windows-7 without the familiar black boot-selection-list.
I did not encounter this issue with SUSE-11 and the V1.x of BCD
What is missing here? New setup is attached after creating grub2 entry

Your system probably has two BCD files (EFI and MBR, maybe?) and you're editing a different one in EasyBCD.
