    Default 10.3 kernel update killed grub

    I just installed the auto update detected kernel update for 10.3 and now boot fails with
    File system type unknown, using whole disk
    kernel /boot/vmlinux-
    root = /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-36...-part9
    resume=/dev/sdb5 splash=silent

    Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition

    The system is 64bit Xeon(r) 5110 at 1.6GHz in a Dell PowerEdge 1900 with LSILogic raid controller

    From what I can find online others have had problems with earlier kernel updates but I can not find a solution

    Use the install dvd to "boot existing installation". When you're in goto Yast --> System --> Boot Loader --> Other (bottom right) --> Propose new configuration ---> wait, wait --> Tab Boot Loader Installation --> checkmark the MBR --> finish

    That should reinstall a new boot loader (if that's the broblem)

    From grub I edited the new kernel entry and removed the hd0 reference line altogether. The kernel booted and I then patched up grup from YaST.

    All is well
