Thread: after installing Opensuse cant boot to Ubuntu

  1. #1

    Default after installing Opensuse cant boot to Ubuntu

    hi, i has a dualboot pc with XP and ubuntu. yesterday i installed Opensuse, everything worked fine after i discovered that i cant boot anymore to ubuntu. it show me the error boot/vmlinuz-2.6.28-15 missing . all the systems are installed in the same HD. any help please.

    Open a terminal in SUSE, and run

    Code:
    su -
    fdisk -l
    mount
    cat /boot/grub/menu.lst
    And paste the output here. That should get us started. Presumably openSUSE is running the boot (as in, you get a 'SUSE' branded bootloader when you turn the PC on?) And you're given all three options (Windows, Ubuntu, SUSE) it's just that Ubuntu doesn't work?

    Good catch caf - that had me confused.

    So I suppose something like...

    Code:
    #Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: none#
    title Ubuntu 9.04 
    root (hd0,4)
    kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/sdb5 ro quiet splash
    initrd /initrd.img
    Would work. That only gives you access to one kernel in Ubuntu, so you could manually reinstall grub on Ubuntu's partition, and chainload that grub. That should be relatively easy - but probably just get it booting this way first.
