I’m new to Linux so feel free to use language that even Cleetus would understand
I’m trying to dual boot my PC using W7 x64 and SuSE 11.4.
I have 3 HDD’s installed W7 is on a 2x1TB RAID0 setup and SuSE is on a separate 320Gb drive.
I’ve got both installed successfully although Linux is the new addition, obviously.
The issue I’m having is the bootloader. According to some dude on youtube, installing SuSE apres W7 would be fine as GRUB would pick up the install, add it to a bootloader and bobs-your-uncle.
That didnt happen. The bootloader in Linux only shows the option to boot into Linux and its safemode equivalent.
I though, ok, no probs, I used to have a hackintosh, gogo EasyBCD.
So, I’ve pointed EasyBCD in the right direction, i.e. the drive and partition that SuSE is on (the 320gb drive has 3 partitions, 2gb for the swap, 20gb for the OS and 200 odd for files)
The bootloader get me into windows fine but if i choose linux all i get is a black screen with:
Obviously i’ve managed to knacker something but I don’t know what?
please help. I don’t want to tear any more hair out… i don’t have much left
The only think i can think to do is uninstall EasyBCD, bootrec /rebuildbcd from elevated CLI, format the linux drive and reinstall in the hope that GRUB will sort itself out. However, I’d rather fix than reinstall
as nubs reinstall, Pr0’s fix.
As I’m in the company of enlightened folk I thought I’d try you before I completely scuttle my boat.
Thanks in advance <3
