Kernel Update Failed - Grub File Not Found

Hi whilst trying to do a zypper up yesterday my kernel failed to apply patch.

Grub is now giving me file not found.

Any suggestions on what i can type into the grub command line to boot my installed system. Default kernel installed.


Try booting off the Installation DVD as outlined here in option number one:
HowTo Boot into openSUSE when it won’t Boot from the Grub Code on the Hard Drive
And then repair the bootloader as outlined in the Appendix to that tutorial.

EDIT: I just noticed – you have the Grub shell – see the second option in that list. Here’s a quote:

Sometimes the only thing that works when you boot is that the Grub menu appears on screen. However when you select openSUSE from the menu, you only get an error message. You can often still boot to the installed SuSE operating system by operating at command level in the Grub shell as follows.
When you see Grub’s boot menu on screen, instead of selecting a boot item, press the Escape key. That brings up a message like this:

  You are leaving the graphical boot menu
  and starting the text mode interface.

            OK       Cancel  

Select the OK option. That should bring a text-based menu on screen with the following text at the bottom: Use the arrow keys to select an OS, ‘e’ to edit or ‘c’ for command line. Press the ‘c’ key and you will get a grub prompt, like so: grub>
Now carry out the following dialogue at the grub> prompt:

You enter this ---------------- find /boot/grub/menu.lst
Computer returns like this ---- (hd0,4)
You enter this ---------------- root (hd0,4)
Computer returns like this ---- Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
You enter this ---------------- kernel /boot/vmlinuz
Computer returns like this ---- [Linux-bzImage, setup=0x000, size=0x25e910]
You enter this ---------------- initrd /boot/initrd
Computer returns like this ---- [Linux-initrd @ 0x37a9c000, 0x5534f3 bytes]
You enter this ---------------- boot

and Voila! The computer boots (we hope).
