something quite incredible happened…and i see no way out…
I have 1 HDD in my system. The first two partitions are NTFS, the first has XP installed.
After having XP installed, i installed opensuse 11.1, with the GRUB bootloader, which also had the XP as menuitem. I just used everything, as it was offered, with default settings.
(So the Linux partitions are after the NTFS partitions.)
This worked fine until today, when I unfortunately happend to try to change the order of the items in the GRUB menu (after normally logging to linux, kde, yast2 , boot loader)
I just change the order, and the waiting time for the default menu item. Changes were saved, and …
Since this time the system doesn’t start, no error message, just blinking cursor instead of GRUB.
I tried to use the install CD, to
- use the automatic repair … it says that the boad loader has errors, repairs it with the a default new config, but nothing changes.
- use the expert tools to fix the boad loader … systems it doesn’t even find linux partitions, or says errors on the ext partiotions. … piece of crap
I even tried to use the XP install cd in recovery mode,
and use bootcfg /rebuild, fixboot, fixmbr commands … no change, the same blinking …
What the hell happened ??
How can I fix this piece of crap ?
Thanks, sorry i am nervous
