?

Hi
To prepare the system hdd you need a live cd, if you grab the openSUSE
13.1 rescue cd from http://software.opensuse.org/131/en this will boot
in efi/secure boot mode if it's enabled in your system BIOS.

You need to then right-click on the desktop and open a terminal;
Code:
su -
gdisk /dev/sda
You need to create partition 1, size 260MB and type ef00, save and exit.

You could also create a / a /home and swap while there but not
necessary. What size disk do you have and how much RAM?

With just the above two things, a) a gpt disk and b) a small partition
set to type ef00 (set to /boot/efi during install) is enough to get you
going. The only thing before you commence the install is to check the
elilo boot option and ensure 'secure boot' is enabled before the install
starts.
