I installed first opensuse 13.1 and then win7. Now I only can start win7 and not opensuse.
Some versions ago did I insert the suse installation DVD and found a possibility to start the just installed suse.
This possibility is missing now, I have to make a complet and new installation to get the bootmanager installation menue.
Do any have a trick to start the well installed suse behind win7 so I can configure grub2?
(NOTE: This must be the save version you installed with, the 13.1 installer)
But, do not click on Install.
Instead, 3rd item down should be “Rescue System”. Click on that and wait for it to load.
It will stop with the line
Type (without the quotes) “root” then press Enter (or Return).
You will now see the prompt, probably in a red font:
You now want to mount the root partition, so replace the “x” in the following examples with the correct letter for your device and the letter “N” with the correct partition number for your root partition.
mount /dev/sdxN /mnt
Mount your other devices:
mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev
Change root to the installed system:
For 13.1, you want to mount /proc & /sys differently than earlier versions. Do:
mount -t proc proc /proc
mount -t sysfs sysfs /sys

If you don’t have any, you should, they are useful for repairs. I
recommend the one labeled “rescue” at the opensuse download page, on a
usb stick. A CD otherwise.
It is graphical, perisistent filesystm, it has the needed tools,
Internet connectivity (not firefox, though), with openSUSE flavour, so
things are very compatible for things like grub reinstall, chroot,
