    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.

    HTH.

    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.
