I am attempting to add OpenSUSE to an existing Windows Vista Ultimate home computer. On paper it seemed simple but… I’m lost now.
Computer has three physical drives
Drive 0: Vista, two partitions, NTFS
Drive 1: NTFS for Vista
Drive 2: OpenSUSE 11.0
Using EasyBCD 1.7.2
I installed OpenSUSE on physical drive 2 with three partitions, swap (sdc1), root (sdc2), and home (sdc3).
I installed GRUB to /dev/sdc2 /boot (and /, and just plain ol /dev/sdc2 - multiple times - to no avail) At least I have avoided the MBR of windows.
I selected flags to write generic boot code and set flag in partition manager under boot loader configuration.
Everytime I fire up and select OpenSUSE from multiboot i get the same message “Cannot load from harddisk.
Insert Systemdisk and press any key.”
I press any key and I am back at multiboot selection.
In EasyBCD I selected to add entry, selected linux, type grub, and drive 2 partition 1.
What am I missing? Right now if I want to run OpenSUSE I get to run Windows instead.
