DualBoot openSUSE 11.2/Win7 Help !

Hi guys.
firstly sorry for my english.

I turn back to openSUSE and install it in my machine (win7 installed first),but i can’t boot from win7. openSUSE doesn’t boot from win7 (like ubuntu) and i can’t see ntfs win7 partition from openSUSE.

Why openSUSE is so complicated about dual booting …???

Any help ?


I read the first thread by swerdna and i put this line in /boot/grub/menu.lst :

You need to install the drivers for you video card before you can use most effects. Which video card/chip do you have?
