    Default Removing Multi-Booting

    Yesterday, I attempted to install openSUSE 11.1 64-bit onto a 8GB flash drive, thinking that I could create a portable OS.

    This, unfortunately, did not work (It only works on my laptop, which I think also relates to the multi-boot files), and now I cannot boot Windows Vista on my laptop without the flash drive in to pull up GRUB.

    At this point, I just want to install openSUSE 11.1 directly onto my hard drive, how do I remove the original multi-booting files off of my Vista OS/hard drive?

    I would really like some help with this issue. So far, I've read of one remedy of removing the dual-booting files in Windows Vista:

    Boot using setup DVD and click on "Repair Computer" link, then click on "Command Prompt". Now navigate to your DVD drive using CD command and at last provide following command:

    bootsect /nt60 SYS /mbr
    I put in CD E: bootsect /nt60 SYS /mbr in command prompt, and it says it cannot find the path specified.

    If you want to repair Vista, this may help
    Winhoes no longer likes to boot after fresh install - Page 4 - openSUSE Forums

    But if the Vista BCD is OK, you should just be able to install SUSE, write the grub to the MBR and that should do it.

    or use
    Download EasyBCD 1.7.2 - NeoSmart Technologies

    to manage booting from Vista
