Again, I only have one HDD at this time (the other is removed). Where am I going wrong? I have fastboot turned off within Windows (no BIOS option for it). Should I attempt to upgrade to version 13.2 as a fix attempt? If so, how much will I lose? I’m getting a bit desperate here. Please help.
Installing 13.2 would not necessarily cause loss of data if you have your /home separate, which is default in openSUSE. But your system and applications would all be refreshed completely as / gets formatted. This isn’t usually an issue for a standard user. It just requires though that you know how to use the advanced install route. You ignore the initial partitioning suggestion and choose to create a setup, then choose the Custom option. In the partitioner, expand the partitioner on the left to see the details on the right. Eg: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10573557/13.1_install/6.png
I just replied to my other thread. It would be my preference to get the grub2 fixed without the upgrade. If that won’t be possible, then we’ll pursue the 13.2 upgrade.
I do have to say that while the help here is volunteer, everyone has been so kind and helpful for the few requests for assistance I’ve made. I am determined not only to get past this but also learn Linux. Then I can hopefully help others!
