Hello NoFake,

Your first post shows 2 grub installations. How did that happen? Also, please boot the LiveCD, open a terminal, do the following, post back output here:

su -
fdisk -lu

Hello mingus725,

Is this question related to the bug 462578 that I entered in Bugzilla.

If the answer is no, forget my reply

If the answer is yes I want to reply the following: I think that it is
caused by the fact that I have changed a number of times the grub
settings during the installation process, each time after the installer
reported that the grub install went wrong. The 2nd question is unclear
to me. Should I boot again from my 8 GB USB-Stick with the DVD-Iso and
if so how and where in the process should I open a terminal to enter
the mentioned commands.
How can I abort the install process afterwards without garbeling my
installed openSUSE 11.1

I do not, and cannot, know until there is more info from @nofake250.

I looked at your bug report, and the data is not entirely correct. We can take a look at the actual partition table and how grub was last installed. But the instructions will be somewhat different than for @nofake250, because OP has LiveCD and you have the DVD. With the DVD, you boot into Rescue System and login as root. At the command line, you would do:

fdisk -lu

And then post the output back here. We will need to see more data, once we know from the table how to mount your root partition. Then grub can be fixed from the command line.
