    HowTo Boot into openSUSE when it won't Boot from the Grub Code on the Hard Drive

    I know you don't get a blank screen because you have the XP bootloader. But this will restore your grub bootloader.

    Not all of the five methods do work for everyone. So try another one. And another one if the second doesn't work. When you eventually get into openSUSE, use the method in the Appendix to restore the bootloader.

    Afterthought: If "find /boot/vmlinuz" works, you could use that instead of "find..../menu.lst" to get your (hd0,x) and proceed with item number 2 in the list of five.

    I just followed these steps in your suggested link


    Boot from your installation DVD. On the first menu screen, select Repair Installed System. After the Kernel & the repair program load, you come to the Repair Method screen with three options:

    Automatic Repair
    Customized Repair
    Expert Tools

    Choose Expert Tools and the repair Tool Box window will open. From there select to Install New Boot Loader. Select the partition where you installed SuSE (if asked). You'll get the Grub GUI setup screen. Check under the Tab "Boot Loader Installation" that the checkmark is in "Boot from Master Boot Record" and remove any other checkmarks. Click "Finish". Wait for message "The boot loader was installed successfully". Click OK --> Next --> Finish. Ignore any error messages and reboot. That should install an elementary Grub and allow you to boot to openSUSE.

    Then i install GRUB boot loader to my root partition and then installed GAG Successfully

    Thank You.
