i popped in my openSUSE into vista today and started the installation in a dual boot situation. it loaded some files and restarted the computer. installation ran from the hard drive and all went well. i installed linux on a separate hard drive and it runs just fine, however when i try to load windows the linux install files are still there so it boots back to the linux installer. how do i get my vista to boot again. i ran the vista start up recovery and it said it found no problems. i am at the vista recovery disk prompt now and i see boot.save grldr.mbr menu.lst an opensuse directory and opensuse_hitme.txt i am assuming that it has something to do with grldr.mbr but i do not know what to do…any ideas?
ahhh i renamed BOOTSECT.BAK to BOOTSECT and boot.save to boot.ini and i am back into vista
You are welcome;)
i am sick of windows and this is going to be about my 5th try to jump to linux. i’ve had nothing but bad luck but this time i am determined to become a man of linux. i already have a few problems such as a really big lag when loading web pages that only occurs inside linux and i cannot stand the mouse jerking around in gnome, but cannot stand how the fonts are sized in kde…
i’m really trying hard to stick with this, this board is probably going to share in my growing pains with all the questions i am going to ask…lol
