At the moment I still have the bootloader, as it gives me the option to boot into Suse 11.1 or windows.*
Windows vista works fine.
Suse goes to a blank screen blue with the curser and is the TWN screen I think - I can get a text box. like a dos box. Can see the home folder, etc etc.
If I put in the recovery disk from the purchased Suse 11.1 it says that the partitions ext3 are corrupted and the bootloader does not exist. That is as far as i have been. I used the MBR to install as recommended. I just went too far for my experience.
All was working well, I loaded using KDE4, hated it, as I was used to KDE3.5, I was helped on here, to change it to KDE3.5, then I installed jbidwatcher and all was well. Very well. Then I noticed it did not play commercial DVD’s. That’s when things stated to get out my comfort zone and wrong. There are threads for all of these.
I then lost my trash basket. So I thought - change back to KDE4 see the basket and hopefully changing back again to KDE3.5 would give me the trash basket again. BUT it did not boot up in KDE4 it just went to this TWM screen.
Some advice on repair or re-installation would be great. I do not want windows destroyed but there is no data in windows that is not backed up.
