Thread: Problems Installing to netbook

    Question Problems Installing to netbook

    Hi. I have an Asus eee pc 1001px and I decided to install openSUSE on it. So I downloaded the live gnome 64-bit cd (11.4) and put it on a USB drive. I then revolted and installed openSUSE to my HDD Which went fine. But then when I rebooted I received the message "error loading operating system".
    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi
    So you removed windows during the install?

    Can you boot from the USB Live device and open a terminal and post the
    output from;

    Code:
    fdisk -l
    cat /etc/fstab
    If windows was on the system and was wiped, it may have not installed
    the bootloader properly.
