http://www.linuxforums.org – Hi all, whole my linux experience is last several days that I can't solve following problem. I had to install openSuSe on hard drive with Windows XP installed (windows was on d: and c: was given to linux). After this, as I understand, ntloader was replaced by Grub, so I couldn't load Windows anymore. Added windows section in Grub, but all I get is error 12: Invalid device or someth. like this. Fixmbr and fixboot through recovery console don't work. Here's my partition: Code:   Device Boot      Start        End      Blocks  Id  System /dev/sda1              1        144    1156648+  82  Linux swap / Solaris /dev/sda2            6376      38912  261353452+  f  W95 Ext'd (LBA) /dev/sda3  *        145        2646    20097315  83  Linux /dev/sda4            2647        6375    29953192+  83  Linux /dev/sda5            6376      13414    56540736    7  HPFS/NTFS /dev/sda6          13415      26163  102406311    7  HPFS/NTFS /dev/sda7          26164      38912  102406311    7  HPFS/NTFS and /boot/grub/menu.lst: Code: default 0 timeout 8 ##YaST - generic_mbr gfxmenu (hd0,2)/boot/message ##YaST - activate ###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: linux### title SUSE LINUX     root (hd0,2)     kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST3320620A_9QF4BXNK-part3 resume=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST3320620A_9QF4BXNK-part1 splash=silent quiet showopts     initrd /boot/initrd ###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: failsafe### title Failsafe -- SUSE LINUX     root (hd0,2)     kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST3320620A_9QF4BXNK-part3 showopts apm=off noresume nosmp maxcpus=0 edd=off powersaved=off nohz=off highres=off processor.max_cstate=1 x11failsafe     initrd /boot/initrd ###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: other### title Windows XP     rootnoverify (hd0,4)     makeactive     chainloader +1 could someone response, what can be done to make dual boot possible without windows reinstall? and sorry for my english if there's some mistakes - it's not my native language (HowTos)
