I am a novice when it comes to Linux. I have a desktop setup to dual boot OpenSuse 12.2 and Windows 7 and it worked properly. I upgraded my Win 7 to Windows 8 and now am unable to boot into Suse, I receive an error 22. I have tried to update my Suse installation with an install cd, ran the fixmbr command on windows 8 and installed easybcd all to no avail. I know that the files are still there as I was able to view them via an usb harddrive reader. I have no idea what to do next. I think that when I installed Windows 8 the boot record changed. I can get to the grub command line, I see that I have 5 partitions on 2 seperate harddrives (HD 1 - 2 partitions - Windows 8 and HD 2 - 3 partitions OpenSuse). I have checked out this thread: https://forums.opensuse.org/english/get-technical-help-here/install-boot-login/446586-boot-problem-kernel-not-found.html but am still at a loss, any suggetions would be greatly appreciated
So, not sure what Windows has done, but I suggest you need to reinstall grub. Consider it is best to NOT use the Windows Partition program after openSUSE is installed.
Your options are first, try to reinstall Grub 2, see it here: https://forums.opensuse.org/content/128-re-install-grub2-dvd-rescue.html
Failing that I suggest you get a LiveCD and use it to determine what is still there and perhaps then reinstall all of openSUSE.

Perhaps the “update” of windows did more than you bargained for?
What happened when you tried to update openSUSE in the way mentioned above?
This is GRUB error 22
22 : No such partition
This error is returned if a partition is requested in the device part of a device- or full file name which isn’t on the selected disk.
(So, GRUB can’t find itt partition.)
From that liveCD can you, from a terminal or console show us the output of
If unsure how, ask.
