Recently I decided to switch from Ubuntu to OpenSuse so normally I attained the TumbleWeed image from OpenSuse and began installing it.
The installation process finished without any problem but after I rebooted to enter my newly installed distro I encountered a blank black screen. (GRUB is not loaded)
After much inquiring I managed to boot into Gnome using the installation disk's
Boot installed system feature but whenever I reboot the same thing happens.
I tried re-installing GRUB using this guide but it did not work.
Since I had my
/opt on separate partitions than
/ I skipped formatting them and just formatted the root partition.
Here is what
fdisk -l spurts out:

As you can see I have 2 HDDs (my primary being an SSD disk).
Upon installation I used the following partition table:
/dev/sda1 mounted on / /dev/sda2 mounted on /opt /dev/sda3 mounted on /home /dev/sda4 (fat) mounted on /boot/efi /dev/sda5 mounted on swap /dev/sda6 unpartitioned
So here I am stuck at that black screen. I tried to be as much detailed as possible so if anyone could help me I'd be immensely grateful.
