y2logs saved before proceeding past installation settings screen
1-start HTTP installation using Grub and 20161105 linux and initrd
2-select do not install any bootloader (no bootloader management)
3-set taboo on grub2, shim and os-prober packages
4-click install button on installation settings screen
1-Error window reports error that must be resolved before continuing
2-installation settings screen reports grub2 needs to be selected
1-installation proceeds without insisting on installing an unneeded and unwanted bootloader package
1-42.2 worked as expected done the same way on 30 November, as did all similar previous installations of both Distribution and Tumbleweed since Grub ceased to be a bootloader option during installation.
2-I proceeded with the installation by leaving locks set on all grub2* packages other than grub2 and specifying /dev/null as the bootloader installation target
3-whether related or not I have no idea, but login was not allowed on first boot. I booted 42.2, chrooted into TW, executed passwd, and was able to boot into TW and login successfully.
4-rpm -e grub2 on first successful boot succeeded.

Josef, please, could you check if that's the expected behavior? Thank you!
Imo - this looks like bug as we allow this use case especially if someone want to use own bootloader.
Thanks Josef. I'm adding this bug report to our SCRUM queue so we can plan for it.
Proceeding to install from "Installation Settings" is still blocked by grub2 not selected for installation in TW 20170322.
This also applies to 42.3.
yast-bootloader version 3.3.2 contains the fix for this issue. It will be released for SLE15 and TW. The pull request with the solution can be found here: https://github.com/yast/yast-bootloader/pull/454
Let me know if you need any additional information.
*** Bug 1065588 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
TW20171123 installer demands grub2 be selected for installation even though do not install any bootloader is selected.
Due storage-ng, yast-bootloader package could not be updated in TW yet.
Success to not install grub2 in TW20180218 x86_64. Only grub-0.97-204.6 installed.
thanks, so lets close
