Hey there, Its my first post in the forum and I’m a newbie to openSUSE and Linux.
I’ve first installed openSUSE about a month ago on my desktop PC, and used a dual-boot (XP and SUSE). Everything was fine and both of them work well.
Some time later I got a new HP pavilion dv4 and had Windows 7 (Beta) installed on it.
When first installing windows I’ve left a partition dedicated for the soon-to-come installation of Linux.
Today I’ve installed openSUSE (64bit) in the partition left for it and now I have a problem running Windows 7.
When booting the system I get a choice between:
(I have no idea why it shows windows twice)
When I choose on of the options (2 or 3) I get a message:
"rootnoverify (hd0,1) [Or (hd0,3) if I choose the other]
BOOTMGR in missing
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to Restart**"
I’ve noticed the sticky on the forum about dual-booting with windows vista and used VI editor to change menu.lst as suggested, but no luck - The problem stays.
For now, I have many problems working my way around Linux, especially on my laptop (wireless , soundcard and surly many other things I didn’t try yet, are not working), But for the moment I only want to fix my boot so that windows will work.
Can anyone give me a newbie guide to fixing this problem?
