Thread: No Windows in Grub

  1. #1

    Default No Windows in Grub

    I had to repair the Grub loader through the installation DVD and now only OpenSuse shows up in the grub. I know my Windows XP partition is still bootable but I am not sure on how to add it back into grub. It is on at sda2 and when I do the "cfdisk" command, the flag is shown as boot. I just need to know what to add into the grub.

    Edit:

    Can someone just copy the Grub options of their Windows XP boot option? I just need to quickly add that in.

    I was able to fix this. At first I was using the Menu Loader option when I needed to use the Chain Loader option. Now I can boot Windows.

    sayid-try 'testdisk', be sure to read the how to use. TestDisk - CGSecurity
    testdisk-4.5.zip

    If it does not work need to see output from 'fdisk -l' -l is a small L.

    First: this is a reply. If you want attention for your problem, start a new thread with a proper title. That way others will see your post and know what it's about.

    Second:
    i do most of solutions
    is no good. One problem has one solutions. This makes me think that you've already messed up a lot of things, instead of reading and (!!!!) backing things up first.

    Third: please be more clear about what the problem is. Include things like, openSUSE version, type of system (32/64bit) etc. etc.
