http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi there. I have a qzd notebook with an rdc 1010 flash drive. I have downloaded the new 11.2 version of opensuse and it now recognises it, so thanks for that. Only trouble is I get an error message of: Failure occured during following action: Setting disk label of disk /dev/sda to msdos. System error code was: -1013 A little history is required in order for you to maybe help me out. I had windows xp installed to begin with (fool me ay!) and when I installed the adobe flash player 10, it always crashed my internet explorer, so i managed to find flash player 7, which I installed and it worked (kind of; it played videos, but stallingly; although this might be to do with the fact that i was also upgrading to IE 8 at the same time) but after a few seconds of it playing a video the computer reset and the message DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER appears. It seems that this flash player was some kind of virus and I worry that it may of damaged the flash drive, or is it that it's just messed up the MBR. Any help much appreciated... Sev (Distributions)
