Thread: grub install problem

  1. #1

    Default grub install problem

    right, installing suse for a friend of mine and the install went fine, except the final boot wouldn't boot down! so i had to hold in the power key and then reboot it, it said no OS, so i went for a system restore and it recognised there was a boot loader problem. the problem is if i click repair it doesn't recognise the windows vista (yes...i know i don't like it either but it's not my machine!).

    it just says: suse linux
    suse linux failsafe.

    i can click add, but i don't know where to start to find what i need to get it to boot windows!

    if i click add i get:
    clone selected section, image selection, manu selection, chainloader section, or xen section.

    which do i choose? then what?

    cheers guys!

    edit: the windows is on /dev/sda1

    Post the output of fdisk -l

    You need to choose to chainload the system.

    After fdisk -l i'll tell you what to do next
    How does a linux geek make love??

    - rtfm; unzip; strip; touch; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; umount; zip; sleep;
