    You need to know which partition is root
    The mount point is given in the guide /mnt (this doesn't change)

    I followed these instructions having reinstalled Windows and lost my boot options. Now it boots to grub at a command prompt and I can't get to windows or my 12.2/64 openSUSE. How do I fix this?

    If grub breaks, here is a quick and easy way to re-install it. If you have another computer to work with alongside this is a great benefit. This will put grub on the MBR of the first HD (hd0)

    Step 1
    1. Get yourself Parted Magic- Burn it to a cd. (EDIT) (I'm adding a link to download a working version of Parted Magic as the current version uses grub2 not legacy.)
    DOWNLOAD THIS VERSION:
    Grub Legacy version of Parted Magic

    Here is a sure way to boot Parted magic without fail (not all options for boot will work so do it this way, it's sure to work)

    Step 2
    2. Once in the live desktop start a RoxTerm, this has root power by default. I have included a video of this being done. We need to start grub, find the menu.lst file, setup grub.

    You type: grub
    Terminal: grub>

    You type: find /boot/grub/menu.lst
    Terminal: (hd0,1) (N.B. You may get different, replace your numbers in the next step)

    You type: root (hd0,1) (Or different depending what previous step gave for you)
    Terminal: Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83

    You type: setup (hd0)
    Terminal: Checking if /boot/grub/stage1 exists ... yes Computer finally returns this-- Succeeded.......Done

    You type: quit
    reboot

    Grub of course is quite complicated and installs can be equally so. Which means this fix might not be suitable for your setup. Learn more about grub here: All About Grub - openSUSE

    Actually, I realized I could recover the mbr with Partition Commander so I'm back to booting to Windows. So, I'll do this better and ask what the proper way is to get the dual boot capability back for openSUSE 12.2.

    I might have spoke too soon... on the boot list I have:

    openSUSE
    advanced options for openSUSE
    Windows recovery environment (loader)

    I select the Windows option and it boots but I have no network adapter. I was thinking the "recovery environment" didn't allow networking so I tried booting to openSUSE and no network there either. It sees the Realtek Ethernet adapter as eth0 but I'm not able to connect to anything.

    I'm sure there's no way changing the mbr could have an effect on the network adapter but sure is strange since this is almost a brand new computer. Any thoughts?

    That's a bug in the openSUSE grub that incorrectly labels windows as recovery.
    Don't panic.

    Please tell me about the machine.

    In the mean time, try powering off completely (if a laptop, also remove the power and battery for a moment)
    Then boot to openSUSE and let us see

    So, you could hear the panic in my voice from there, huh? ;-)
