A newer Linux user here. I had XP and 10.3 dual boot installed. I chose the Upgrade option for 11.0 instead of a new install (perhaps foolishly).
After the Upgrade, I was able to fix menu.lst to boot into XP. However I cannot get OpenSUSE to boot. My question is: Any ideas on how to fix the problem(s) below? Or, should I try a fresh install, rather than an upgrade? If so, how do I get the DVD installation to reappear? Even forcing the CDROM as the first boot device, I appear to be booting off the hard disk GRUB.
Thanks for any help/ideas!
The first failure in the boot cycle appears to be:
Unable to find swap-space signature
mount: according to mtab, /dev/sda2 is already mounted on /
The second issue appears later in the boot cycle:
Waiting for /dev/sda3 . no more events
checking file systems…
error on stat() /dev/sda3: No such file or directory
fsck.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/sda3
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
e2fsck -b 8193 <device>
