installation repeats itself every time I turn the laptop on

This is my first experience with Linux, and I’m not sure what to do.

I bought a new laptop and it had SLED 11 Linux on it, and when I first turned on laptop, installation was interrupted accidentally. So then I got Error 17 :stuck_out_tongue: And then I putted Recovery DVD and installed everything properly (or at least I think I did :/)

So then I got to login and I putted “root” and a password I wrote during the installation. And everything worked fine, I got Desktop and Items and everything.

But then, if I shutdown my laptop and then turn it on again, I have to go through whole installation process again… :confused: but when it comes to create user I can see that it remembers my login name (not root, but user name). And then it again comes to Desktop and so on.

Is there something I need to do so I don’t have to go through all this over and over again?

Any help would be highly appreciated :slight_smile:

Everything is screwed up.

Walk through BIOS, load defaults.

Install opensuse 11.2, probably 64 bit.

Wipe the disc and start again. You have the DVD. It should be the full blow install DVD.
Personally I would use a utility disk like Parted Magic to delete all partitions and leave it unpartitioned. Then boot the SLED DVD and let it default install.
