Still haven't received the feedback with efi_gop. Closing the bug. If problem reamins, feel free to reopen.

You need to insmod efi_gop. Normally it's handled by grub-mkconfig.

Did not work; see https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=800035#c25:

So with EFI I have indeed (cd0), but booting says (I'm tying from one screen to
another :):

error: no suitable video mode found.
Booting in blind mode
Trying to terminate EFI services again

after that nothing

There are reports of failure to boot grub2 on some UEFI systems. So far reports are about Dell Inspiron 15z 5523 and asus X202e / S200 / VivoBook.

Details are https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=800035

It contains links to two openSUSE forum threads which also have some screenshots. One of interest is http://susepaste.org/10571814.

Original report was about ELILO which fails to boot as well.

Stephan Kulow from SUSE (Cc'ed) has Dell Inspirion and is willing to provide debug information if instructions can be given. I tried to collect at least lsmmap/lsefimmap but apparently grub2 is not even able to load modules in this case. If some special GRUB2 build is required I offer my help to do it.
