I have a nine year old PC.
It’s a PIII with dual 1Gig processors at 1Gig clock speed, with 1Gig of ram.
This is a dual boot system.
It has two hard drives, one is 250Gb loaded with Windows 2000 Professional, this is the C: drive.
The second hard drive is 400GBs where openSuse 11.0 is loaded.
I have installed a new (C:) hard drive to try and solve any existing problems. This is a dual boot system. I have Windows 2000 Professional already installed. Then I installed openSUSE 11.0. And did all of the online updates from the initial boot. Then I rebooted and can’t get back into linux. I have a slight configuration problem in the Grub boot logger. I notice in the lines of text in the boot loader sentences, that it refers to (0,6). It won’t boot there but if I edit it to (0,5) then it will start to boot but stops at a line with a $ cursor and the lines just above saying something about not being able to mount sda7 because another program has already mounted it. So I reboot with the opensuse disk and go into the option to rescue the system. When it gets to LOGIN, I login using “ROOT”. I then have the Rescue~#: cursor. I just don’t know what to type to get any answers for you. Could you please coach me with what to type so I can get info for you to help me?
I do know I have
[/boot partition that is 70.5MB], and a
/ partition that is 20.0GB], and a
[swap partition that is 2.0GB], and a
[/home partition that is 222.5GB].
All of these sizes and partitions were chosen by the installation process. I did not edit anything.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Don’t flame me if I have added this in the wrong area. I’m new and don’t know what I’m doing.
