Help with getting rid of grub loader please

I have windows vista and windows 7 installed on different partitions of my hp laptop and i tryed to install opensuse on another partition. What i did was:

mounted the opensuse iso using virtual clone drive (probably a mistake) and ran it from there, now i have no open suse install disks and the grub loader constantly starts up with no option to boot either of my windows partitions. I have tryed to use recovery disks and repair disks from neosmart. I do not have bootsect.exe to do the advanced steps with (and i do not know how to get it) i have tryed various solutions (all to no avail) and i could do with a hand from someone more experienced with the linux grub and everything.


thankyou in advance :slight_smile:

Are you wanting to wipe suse off or just get in to Windows? Please post the results of the following commands.

#fdisk -l
#ls -l /dev/disk/by-id/

bootsect.exe is a binary used to boot linux from the windows bootloader. I believe in GRUB you can do something like this…

rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

Once you figure all this out and get it working right you’ll know what the yast partitioner does when you modify disks and edit the bootloader.

BTW 11.2 is out … and next it’s worth burning it to disk.

What you have done is run the installer in windows. Bad idea. Please read this carefully
