Hello Istvan,Thanks for replying. I have done exactly as you have suggested. Both with
the 11.0 disk and the 11.2 disk. And I have "booted the installed
system", both 11.0 and 11.2 successfully, although it misidentifies the
disk. When I modify the grub to reflect where everything is properly, I
end up with an error message that it could not make the changes.
OK, according to this you have a working system when booting with install
DVD. I would boot eg. 11.2 using the DVD. Then I would move /boot/grub to
/boot/grub.backup and would try to install/create boot loader from scratch
in yast (select suggest new configuration). I would also check /etc/fstab
and use consistent partition names according to /dev/disk/by-id entries
both in /etc/fstab and grub files (just for safety).
I could do this of course, but I am afraid to. The stupid rescue system
mis-identifies my hard drives. It calls sdc sda, so if I write it that way
and then gets installed into the MBR I will really have big problems. I
suppose I could rename the disks for the purposes of the Grub menu but that
still worries me.
It is strange though, in the menu of "Boot installed system" it calls 11.2 as
being sda8 (when really it is sdc8) it still boots to the OS.
If this still gives error, then you probably have to install grub usingDunno. Where do I go from here. CTR+ALT+F10 gives me nothing, just like the
command line. Or CTR+ALT+F10 may show the error messages given by YAST/Grub
