Hi all.I have installed opensuse 12.2 with grub2 installed in mbr.because of some testings I have lost my mbr.Nlonger I can boot.how to fix that with opensuse 12.2 dvd rescue system menu?
Have you tried using a utility disk like Supergrubdisk
Once in SUSE run: grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
I have only access to my opensuse installation dvd. Is’nt anyway to repair with the dvd disk?
It’s all command line. Please proceed with caution. I’m not 100% sure about the detail. Re-installing your system might be safer…
You can chroot to the installed system (that’s your / partition) so,
Boot the rescue and at the login type: root
**fdisk -l **will display your partitions as a reminder
In this I will assume sda1 as / (you need to change to suit your setup) so at the # prompt:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev
I think you should now be able to start yast with:
From here you can re-install grub or just re-install the kernel will do it to
That would be my recommendation.
I Solved it by
mount /dev/sdYX /mnt
where Y is my hard letter in this example “a” and X is my root partition in this example 2
grub-install.unsupported --root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/sda
and get grub legacy back.
then boot to the system and installed the grub2 via yast.
all things are fine now
