By "manufacturer installation SUSE" do you mean like (for example) HP
providing a laptop pre-installed with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLED)?

If so, it's down to the manufacturer how they handle recovery. If the
"Disk2" you refer to is DVD2 of a particular release of SLED then that
contains the source packages and is not a recovery disk.

Hi
You could use SUSE Studio https://susestudio.com to create a preload
image to boot and install as per your requirements.

The other option is to create an autoyast file after install and use
that for a re-install.
