Thread: OpenSuse 11.4 and Windows 7 boot problem. Win7 will not boot.

  1. #1

    Default OpenSuse 11.4 and Windows 7 boot problem. Win7 will not boot.

    Okay, I've read every thread and every post and still i didn't find a solution. I have installed on my system opensuse 11.4 and since a week ago i got the famous error when trying to boot windows :

    rootnoverify (hd0,0)
    chainloader (hd0,0)+1

    A disk error has occurred.
    Press Ctr+alt+delete whatever.

    So, i boot into linux(which takes about 20 minutes - another problem! ) and my previously mounted C: partition ( the one with windows) has disappeared. But my other windows partitions are still mounted ( D & E).
    I really need to get back to windows, loads of data that has to be saved rests there.
    So, if anyone knows how and is eager to help me, please do so. It's Christmas, for Heaven's sake!

    So that we can get an understanding of you configuration; please run the following commands in a terminal window (e.g. Konsole), and post the output inside CODE tags (It's a pain but you have to choose Advanced when you reply and then #).

    Code:
    sudo /sbin/fdisk -l
    cat /etc/mtab
    cat /etc/fstab
    
    df -lhT
    
    cat /boot/grub/menu.lst

    I need you to get me your disk info
    You can do that from a terminal in SUSE with:

    Code:
    su -
    fdisk -l
    Please be patient and don't panic

    Great now we have 2 threads on this!

    Depends which partition holds the boot code

    Typically the code sda1 is

    ###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: windows###
    title Windows
    rootnoverify (hd0,0)
    chainloader +1


    For sda5 it would be

    ###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: windows###
    title Windows
    rootnoverify (hd0,4)
    chainloader +1

    I doubt it would be on sda6

    You can examine the windows partitions for 'bootmgr'

    i find that extremely difficult to believe.

    but, never mind...please show us the terminal input/output from

    Code:
    df -hlT
    cat /etc/fstab
    mount
    sudo /sbin/fdisk -l
    copy/paste the in/output back to this thread using the instructions

    so that means i have to edit menu.lst and instead of rootnoverify ( hd0,0) it should be (hd0,4) ?
    but sda5 is my E drive, it's not the windows partition.


    Actually i think my windows partition is sda1, because if it's size :

    /dev/sda1 63 40965749 20482843+ 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT

    the size is 20482843 which means aprox 20 GB.
