I installed Opensuse13.1 (64bit) on a second hard disk(sdb), as I experience many problems with Ubuntu13.10(64bit), on the first one (sda). It worked fine. I could boot Ubuntu and Opensuse dual boot using the Ubuntu boot sequence. Having lots of problems on Unbuntu I decided to abandon it and just use Opensuse. I used yast and configure the boot loader and remove the ubuntu disk. Now the system does not boot… no problem use rescue cd and select boot linux on harddisk. It works and Opensuse boots run fine.
I then run
- grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg (to get rid of the ubuntu settings)
- Yast-> bootloader. set bootloader options ‘set active flag…’, write generic boot code’ . etc done
a. If I run fdisk -l , Ican see that no partition is set active … , I retried this a a few times, nothing , I need to set it with fdisk??
b. I can change the ‘boot loader location’ to anything … it says it has been change, and I can exit yast and when I return it does show my changes, but on reboot (via the rescue disk select boot linux) it always select the Custom boot option??, as if I never changed it at all . I tried this a couple of times…
Needless to say the system cannot boot, saying … no operation system found.
Why can’t Yast recover me?
Thanks in advance
