    Installing SUSE first, then Fedora might make it easier for you.
    But you seem to be really struggling here
    And as I said, SUSE grub is difficult where the install is beyond the 128GB limit
    Fedora should be OK with it.

    This is not the 128 limit, that gives a different error.

    I decided to try to install 11.4 without the bootloader , which worked, but after the installation it said the GUI was not installed either because of a minimal option which I did not choose or my video card is not supported. Oh well I guess i don't need to have suse on this desktop, maybe when I get time over the holidays I'll try again, thanks for the help everyone.

    Regarding error 25, if you do try again, I suggest you create a separate boot partition for openSuse, say, 100mb using ext4. Fedora should be able to see that after you update grub. The 125 gb warning really doesn't apply to most modern drives. My boot partition for openSuse is about 800gb over that limit. Good luck!

    He is not getting that warning. He gets a read/write error.

    I have the same error and warring about 128 Gb. I have WD 2TB. Partitions: 200 GB Primary Active NTFS, 1400Gb Primary NTFS, then Extended - 1Gb - swap, 34 GB ext4 - root, and 100+ Gb ext4 - home. I tried to install bootloader to MBR (setup --stage2=/boot/grub/stage2 --force-lba (hd0) (hd0,5)) and have error 25. I tried to install Kubuntu instead of OpenSuse and grub installed with no error and works fine, but i need OpenSuse. Is there any way to fix this error? I've no internet on this machine, only 2 LiveCD (Kubuntu 11.10 and OpenSuse KDE 12.10). I tried to install OpenSuse without bootloader, then load Kubuntu from LiveCD, chroot to OpenSuse but don't know how to fix grub. Need help

    I suggest you use SuperGrubDisk to boot Ubuntu
    Then do
    Code:
    update-grub
    Code:
    grub-install /dev/sda

    caf4926, thanks. Somebody know about the bugreport for this bug in Suse Installer? (I tried to install 11.4 and it has the same error in installer)

    The error 25 and the 128 GB warning are different errors. Post a new thread.
