    Default All I get is Grub Rescue when booting.

    Hi All,

    I have 3 HDD's

    1. 1TB (sda - Which is partitioned into swap (sda1), boot (sda2), root (sda3) & home (sda4))
    2. 1TB (sdb - Backup drive)
    3. 2TB (sdc - MultiMedia drive)

    Re-installing 13.1 (64bit) KDE, I told the installer to install grub to sda2 (boot).

    Rebooting without the install DVD still comes up with grub rescue

    I've been running linux since 2007, got to say that Windows 7 looks very attractive from where I'm sitting (getting old & just want things to work).

    Any advice always gratefully received!

    openSUSE 15.1 (x86_64) KDE Plasma
    Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H - AMD(R) DUAL CORE 270 @ 3.40GHz
    nVidia Geforce GTX280 - 8GB DDR2 800MHz RAM

    I suggest to boot using the DVD and do the following.

    Once you are logged in then you can use
    yast2 bootloader
    to check and adjust the bootloader installation.

    To check for the bootable flag
    fdisk -l
    Run grub2
    grub2-mkconfig /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
    Run mkinitrd
    If those command did not produce some errors then you should be fine. If you are halfway the installation process and the first reboot will not succeed for what ever reason then this also a solution
