Thread: Main boot record messed up

  1. #1

    Default Main boot record messed up

    Hi,

    I have windows 7 and openSUSE installed, so normally
    at the MBR screen I can choose Windows 7 or opensuse
    when I rebooted, the boot screen that was available is
    no longer there and it boots into openSUSE automatically
    is there anyway I can fix it?

    Do you use btrfs or LVM containers partitions?

    Is this laptop and do you use hibernate?

    Please, next time use CODE tags around your copied/pasted computer text. It is the # button in the tool bar of the post editor.
