    Default Dual boot problems on HP m9263 sc

    I have a HP Pavillion Elite m9263 sc that comes with Windows Vista Home Premium pre-installed on which I've installed OpenSuse 11 to get a dual boot system. During the installation I accepted the suggested partioning.

    After the install I have five boot options:

    openSUSE 11.0 - 2.6.25.2-1.1
    Failsafe -- openSUSE 11.0 - 2.6.25.2-1.1
    Windows 1
    Windows 2
    Windows 3


    The two openSUSE boot options work, but I can no longer boot Windows Vista.

    Selecting Windows1 gives the following:

    rootnoverify (hd1,5)
    chainloader (hd0,0)+1

    BOOTMGR is missing
    Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart


    Booting Windows2 gives:

    rootnoverify (hd1,5)
    chainloader (hd0,3)+1


    And Windows3:

    rootnoverify (hd1,5)
    chainloader (hd1,0)+1

    BOOTMGR is missing
    Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart


    Any suggestions as to how I can get Windows Vista booting on this machine?

    Thanks!

    /Martin

    If your vista is on the first partition of the first drive then change this:
    rootnoverify (hd1,5)
    chainloader (hd0,0)+1
    to this:
    rootnoverify (hd0,0)
    chainloader (hd0,0)+1
    as per martinstr's advice.

    Here's the fuller picture: Fixing vista multiboot with openSUSE - openSUSE Forums

    I'd be interested to know if it works (i.e. if I need to alter the sticky)
