Re: [opensuse] Installation of 11.4 fails: Error 22 for GRUB --- now also Windows disappeared!



Okay, that funny installation process (which one can not
stop apparently once it gets behind the first phase of
installation, where then the bootloader-installation fails
--- shouldn't this be the FIRST thing to install and check??)
apparently now succeeded at least in changing the boot-process
of the machine (using /boot for the bootloader):

When starting the machine it says now:

Error No operating system

Apparently that's where the typical boot-choice-menu
would show up, but since it wasn't installed correctly
(without a chance of doing anything on that), now nothing
works anymore.

How do I get rid off that, and enable at least the Windows again?

I would really appreciate some information.

Now I created a dedicated /boot-partition:

The error message now says:

grub> setup --stage2=/boot/grub/stage2 --force-lba (hd0,3)(hd0,3)
Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition.

(Sure, it should be the case that more information is given.
"Cannot" says nothing.
And obviously the system should now about the *typical* problems
when installing Suse on a laptop with windows (or has Suse given
up on this?))

Hello,

I want to install Suse 11.4 on a Laptop (HP-G62) with Windows 7 on it
(no previous Linux).

I created three partitions for / (ext4, 20GB), /home (ext4, 100GB) and swap (4GB).

Now at the end of the installation process, either when installing
grub into MBR or the other possibility (forget what it was called,
but there are two possibilities), I get the following error message:

-------------
GNU GRUB version 0.97 (640K lower / 3072 upper memory)
[ ... ]
grub> setup --stage2=/boot/grub/stage2 --force-lba (hd0) (hd0,4)
Error 22: No such partition
grub> quit
-------------

I didn't find something relevant in the Internet on that.

Shall I perhaps create also a dedicated partition for /boot ?
(And if so, what size should it have?)

Thanks for your consideration.

Oliver
