I am rather new to Opensuse. After installing Opensuse to an External Hard Drive which I took out of my old laptop (cased it with a USB 3.0 connection), I booted up and everything was fine. I was presented with Graphical Opensuse screen with options to boot into Opensuse or Windows.
The problem occurs when I disconnect the external HDD and then turn on my machine. The screen goes blank, then a few lines of text saying something like ‘Grub failed to load’ or something similar then thats it, nothing happens beyond that. This means now that I need to keep my Ext. HDD connected to access Windows. Its like a Mother walking around with the baby attached with an umbilical cord attached.
I have two problems I am seeking help to solve. They are:
1.How can I return the Grub screen to its original pre-suse Windows boot up state?
2 How can I install Opensuse to my External HDD so that I can choose the option to start it from the bios, so that there’s no problem when I start the machine when Ext. HDD is disconnected?
I would be most grateful for your help.
