adding window7 boot to opensuse 11.1

I am newbie to linux so please understand.

My boot loader was overwritten by windows 7. so I inserted the boot cd and repaired the boot using YAST. now I am able to login to suse but when I select windows it says bootmgr missing.

I read thru some of the board and added the following lines to menu.1st:
###Windows 7
title Windows 7
rootnoverify (hd0,1)
chainloader +1

linux-d8a4:~ # fdisk -l

I have boot from root partition selected in the boot laoder installation tab.

please help.

Try changing as shown in red above. That is assuming sda3 is the actual w7 partition.

you know how to edit it ?

kdesu kwrite /boot/grub/menu.lst
gnomesu gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

done from a user terminal, enter password when requested

fixed now. basically edited menu.1st from rootnoverify (hd0,1) to rootnoverify (hd0,0).

That’s some cRappie boot partition isn’t it:P

Yep! The computer makers (at least laptop) are now using that hidden partition to store the repair/restore image so they don’t have to send a physical dvd. Waste of usable drive space IMHO.
