http://forums.opensuse.org – I am working without a net here. All of my data, terrabyte of family photos...etc. I had Vista running as my only OS. I installed openSuse 11.2. On the first install it failed due to bad media. I burned another DVD and installed again. This gave some strange results. GRUB comes up first with a 2 Suse options and 2 failsafe options and Windows 1 and Windows 2. The first Suse option worked for several days but now it's saying no such partition. Windows 2 works and then brings up the Vista boot loader with the option for Vista or two Suse options. I've only selected Vista from here. Basically I would like to straighten this out and only use the Vista loader. As of right now I cannot access Suse but, I am in Vista. I looked at Disk manager and all of the partitions look good so I'm guessing the problem getting to Suse is only with Grub...I hope. Any ideas? :shame: (Distributions)
