    Default Multisystem (openSUSE 10.2 & WinXP) problem with boot

    Hi @ll.
    I have some problems with corectly boot systems on my friend's pc.
    First he has only openSUSE 10.2, then he want me to install WinXP.
    I did that but I had many problems with multisystem menu at start, of course WinXP after installation "kill" SUSE ;-)
    I resolve that with this thread:
    Cool Solutions: Configuring Dual Boot (SUSE Linux, Windows) Systems
    But when I choose WinXP from bootmenu it was display this error:
    "filename must be either an absolute pathname or blocklist" - that I resolve by repair system from boot CD (it repair grub, but I must to do the same changes like in thread).
    Now I have mulisystem menu, WinXP start corectly, but openSUSE unfortunately not. ;-(
    When I try to start SUSE, it ask me:
    "Give root password for login:" and after input password shows "(none):~ # _".
    Before this question it shows some problem, exactly it shows:

    fsck.ext /dev/hdb6 failed (status 0X8). Run manualy!
    /dev/hdb6 is mounted. e2fsck: Cannot continue, aborting.

    fsck.ext /dev/hdb6 failed (status 0X8). Run manualy!
    error on stat() /dev/hda7: No such file or directory
    fsck.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/hda7
    The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock error on stat() /dev/sda1: No such file or directory superblock:
    e2fsck -b 8193 <device>

    fsck.ext3 /dev/hda7 failed (status 0x8). Run manually!
    error on stat() /dev/sda1: No such file or directory
    error on stat() /dev/sda1: No such file or directory

    usbcore: registered new driver usbhid
    drivers/usb/input/hid-core.c: v2.6:USB HID core driver

    fsck failed for at least one filesystem (not /).
    Please repair manually and reboot.
    The root file system is is already mounted read-write.

    Attention: Only CONTROL-D will reboot the system in this maintanance mode. shutdown or reboot will not work.

    Give root password for login:

    So anyone have idea how to repair SUSE to start corectly???

    THX for any answer!!

    I suggest you use the install DVD for Suse and follow the installation screens until ubtil you get the "Repair Installed System" option. The screens are:
    Select Mode ---> Other Options --> Repair Installed System

    Then select to "Automatic Repair". That might sort out the damaged filesystem.
