Suse will then overwite the MBR with Grub. Uh, I just went to read the solution and from what I see I have to have a running version of OpenSuSE to get it to work... I did this before with a different setup and it cloned and booted fine.

delete the partitions make a linux partition of the size you want (type 83) make a linux swap partition of the size you want (type 82) (they can both be primary How do I fix it? Trying to minimize the hassle I thought Iíll take SUSE 9.3, letting her do partitioning to enable dual boot with my win xp. It works but stop if the number of systems exceeds 10.

You should master Grub before getting into something 10 times more difficult.

As I said I was doing my job when this all started. Puppy makes the filesystem on the partition you choose, then writes the files. So on a whim I installed the old drive that only has / on it and same error is coming up. As for the knoppix version its the latest 6.4.4 downloaded from a mirror listed on their official site, I've tried other isos too as well as version 6.4.2 to see see

Your computer currently can boot only XP and you can only access Suse via a Suse installation CD. First of all you need to create (or allow Suse installer to create) two partitions for installing a Linux. I don't know how to take and disable the flag. It then also occured, when I tried to boot into a live version of Astrumi linux.

the os cannot see this part but when grub tries to mount the disk he gets an error because he think that the partition of windows should start at the begining Get More Info It is fairly involved in twisting its arm as you need to unhide some system files, install the bootloader file in C drive and then hide the system files again. Grub counts from zero. I even changed the file system on the /boot from extfs4 to extfs3.

The above steps should have been achieved by Yast of the installation CD. PS: That link you gave kiyop just links to a new reply in this thread..... Do you mean the tutorial below? useful reference altoptions=(extra menu suffix) extra boot options ## altoptions=(single-user) single # altoptions=(single-user mode) single ## controls how many kernels should be put into the menu.lst ## only counts the first occurence of

If I am right you have installed the Suse OK but not its bootloader Grub.

I think that's the difference. It booted fine and for the most part ran okay... Get the sfs (English only). Admittedly, every now and then you can get a good disk that stays good, so all is not lost.

The original machine works perfect and the new machine has the same hardware (least it says it does) the cloning process(systemimager) works fine but when i reboot the cloned machine it You will have to register before you can post in the forums. (Be aware the forums do not accept user names with a dash "-") Also, logging in lets you avoid I read that openSUSE's Legacy Grub has been patched (long ago) to allow extfs4 booting. this page Minor versions can be omitted. ## e.g.

This is a production machine and I am in the middle of a billing cycle with deadlines so I won't even do security updates during this time. I am re-installing with all ext4FS replaced with either extfs3 or ReiserFS. Originally Posted by mandi1989 PS: That link you gave kiyop just links to a new reply in this thread.....

It would be kind of handy to at least have a solution for getting into Windows XP again. The menu.lst supports the fact that a Linux has been installed in (hd0,2) or the 3rd primary partition of your first bootable disk.

Then probepart can show you what you have, if it is shows a Linux partition(s), check the filesystem for errors.

You can do this with Suse installation disk. I did create a lot of floppy versions of Linux and used Lilo on some but they are limited although Menuet is a good example of what you can do on Do a "fdisk-l" (without the quote) and see how the hdd has been partitioned. lockalternative=true ## lockalternative=false # lockalternative=false ## additional options to use with the default boot option, but not with the ## alternatives ## e.g.

Re-installing didn't work. I thought you had to have a fairly new version of grub to support reiserfs, or had to pass some other options to it. I'm following the tutorial on the wikki and this forum, exactly as instructed but there's the grub problem.
