    Default Boot problem after latest kernel update today.

    For some reason I get tossed into a screen with ‘Rescue >’ Prompt.
    I tried to get boot repaired(see below), and got nowhere.

    And of course, this is ME and I don’t know what to do with it.
    I had to unplug Leap HDD’s to get to Windows.

    Do the instructions here work? I tried something similar from another web site, and got nowhere

    I am putting Leap on my windows drive, hoping I can salvage some things from the other installs.

    Leap 15.3 on the PCI 160GB PATA drive

    Leap 15.3 on a SATA 160GB drive (with some bad sectors)
    Any way to fix those bad sectors assuming I can get it to boot again?

    I can now print with openSuSe Leap! Can Scan now, could be better!!
    I can backup my iPod and iPad with Windows, can't with Linux.(Will get there someday!)

    The latest kernel, in a fresh install, starts the boot script showing, then gets to a point where it is a black screen, and the monitor goes into standby mode(orange instead of blue), The on/off button is blue when active and orange when off(or standby?).
    Any thing I can do to stop that black screen? And let the boot complete? If I put it in ‘Recovery’ option, the same thing happens.

    This fresh install is on the Windows drive, and I can get to Win 7 & Win 10, BUT Leap blanks out on it!

    Is there an iso I can download that has the previous(or older) kernel?

    The PATA on the PCI CARD started ONCE up with the previous kernel then nothing!

    I suspect the ‘boot loader’ or Grub or ??? has been corrupted.
    When I get the RESCUE> prompt and do an ‘ls’ the the ‘ls (hd0,msdos?) nothing shows up as having a boot partition(something has to because Windows works!).

    I need suggestions for finding places to look to ‘fix’ it.
    I know I am going to lose a LOT of things I’d like to keep.
    TIA

    The update to the HP AIO seemed to work OK. At least when I restarted it after the update it came back without that ugly black screen. I don5 use it much because the onboard graphics hic-cups once in a while, and I’m not in the mood to replace the chipset(s).
