    Default GRUB Screen black after cloning

    I am making some test to clone my hard drive, but after restoring the cloned hard drive the grub screen becomes black but opensuse boots fine, how can I fix the grub screen?

    There may be a clue in the menu.lst file, can you post it here along with the filesystem obtained from the command
    Code:
    sudo /sbin/fdisk -l

    This is the menu.lst

    Code:

    I solved by reinstalling the packs grub and gfxboot in yast, but I want to know why happens this, because if I am cloning everything is exactly the same right?.
