at the flashing cursor - which could be login (if you have auto login disabled)
so you will need to login
but do so as root
make sure you are runlevel 3
Ideally, you would pause the green grub boot screen using the down arrow, then move back to suse boot and type the number : 3
then hit enter
in root login runlevel3
type: sax2 -r -m 0=vesa
You can get your old bootloader with windows back by getting to /boot/grub
in there will be a menu.lst.old
that will probably be the one you need
open it and copy the text for the windows boot and paste to your existing /menu.lst
I don’t use GNOME, so I don’t know what the equivalent program is.
in YAST open the Community repositories. You should see one for NVIDIA. Enable it and then choose the latest driver (I don’t do it this way, so i don’t know the name sorry). You will need to reboot after installing it. It should display an NVIDIA splash screen, if it installed correctly.
You need ‘root’ permissions to open /boot/grub/menu.lst, yes.

Now that you are in openSUSE ok, why not run YaST > System > Boot Loader. In there it has the option for YaST to read your partitions and propose a new grub configuration. This should, according to other posts on the topic, find XP and include it in the grub menu for you.
