Long time since I’ve been on here. I just recently installed openSUSE 11.3 on my HP Mini and it’s great. Except for one thing, I went into the Partitioner through Yast and clicked on my Windows Partition, then Mounted it (I thought I was mounting it in order to access its files, I wanted to edit photos with GIMP).
Well, I did this and I must’ve clicked something wrong…
Now when I try to log into openSUSE I get an error. It tells me something about cannot Mount /home then follows with a new box saying Error 3 I believe. After that shows me the login screen. Repeats after attempt.
I’m going to try to login into it now, and then I’ll post everything it tells me word for word… I’m hoping someone can guide me through this… I’m in desperate need to escape Windows.
I’ve never used Parted Magic before… I assume I’d have to burn the image to an SD card or something? The HP Mini doesn’t have a CD drive & I don’t have an external one either.
I think I understand everything you’re saying. Could I use a program in Windows to do this? Such as EASEUS Partition Master Home Edition? This is what I’ve used to Resize/Move/Edit my partitions from Windows before…
I’ll wait for your reply before I touch anything. Last thing I want to do is make another mess that’ll leave me without either OS’s.
It might be easier, given your compromising situation, to just re-install openSUSE, because the workaround to fix this is going to take a long time to explain because it’s rather complicated.
Did you install SUSE using a USB flash drive? Was it a live CD?
My guess is that you selected the wrong partition. It was your home partition that you changed the mount point. It is possible that you formated it also. You need to be very sure what your actions will cause before committing to a new partitioning scheme.
