OpenSUSE Install :: Restore Startup Theme (not Bootloader And Not Logon)

Nov 26, 2009

After one of the updates (the same day as the kernel was updated) my Startup Theme has been changed from standard SUSE light-green to a dark SUSE EDUCATION.

I'm not talking about GDM logon (this is OK) and not about Bootloader screen (also OK).

I meant a progress of the SUSE loading.

I have Open SUSE 11.1 with GNOME and some software from EDUCATION repo but not a Education release.

OpenSUSE Install :: Multiboot Bootloader - Cannot Restore Grub

Apr 13, 2011

I installed Gnome 3 on a free partition of my netbook but I lost the boot to my suse kde...(MBR). I launched a live CD on USB but cannot restore Grub; the only way is to reinstall the KDE. Then it boots but does not show Gnome 3. Why the installer does not take into account both OS?

OpenSUSE Install :: Bootloader Fails To Install(grub Cannot Install Bootloader)?

Nov 7, 2010

I have a major problem installing opensuse 11.3 on my computer( hp pavilion dv6).I downloaded openSUSE-11.3-GNOME-LiveCD-x86_64 from software.opensuse.org: Download openSUSE 11.3 and made a live usb.I'm a newbie at using linux infact i never used another operating system beside windows.Now i have installed windows 7 (on c disk 100gb).My first problem when i am trying to install opensuse is that he dosn't automatic choose to make my partitions so i have to do it manualy.I was searching how to make it the best way so i desited to make 4 partitons one for ' /boot' one for ' / 'one for '/home' and a swap partition/In windows7 i made 4 new partitons

3:10 gb for /boot
4:10 gb for/
5:70 gb for /user
6:10 gb for /swap

My first question is :Is this right to make 4 paritions in windows (opensuse can't format or resize my partitions it just can edit it ) so it's my only way to make partitions( If this is wrong how can i make partitions then)

My second question is how to change the bootloader configurtation because everytime when ii try to install opensuse it stops at about 96% and it says to reconfigure the bootloader options.

If i skip this i get the folowing message

=== System Checking ===
Checking for /usr/bin/chroot binary... Passed
Checking for chroot directory /mnt... Passed
Checking for chroot directory content (bin
boot
Checking for binary /mnt/bin/ls... Passed
Trying to chroot... Failed

This is worth reporting a bug at url.

Ubuntu :: Clean Install Of Windows 7 : The Bootloader Screen At Startup Doesn't Appear At All

Jan 1, 2010

A couple of months ago I decided to use the wubi installer to install ubuntu on my comp in a dual boot configuration. Yesterday, I clean installed my windows drive with windows 7.I have my windows install on drive C: and my wubi install in Drive D: ( they are on completely different hard disks ), so the ubuntu virtual disks are still intact and the wubildr.mbr is still there.

The bootloader screen at startup doesn't appear at all! I tried to manually boot into the D: hard drive but come up with a error 17 grub loading error, which was because the grub loader doesn't recognize the file system on the drive (ntfs). is there a way to somehow recover the wubi installation?

EDIT: I did some research on the net, apparently if I backup up the root.disk file, erase everything else on the drive, install wubi again and overwrite the root.disk file with the backed up one I should be able to restore my previous ubuntu installation! However, I don't want try something until I'm certain that it would work.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 - How To Restore Windows Bootloader

Jul 4, 2011

My setup is like this:
* Installed Windows 7 on primary (SATA) hard drive
* Installed Ubuntu 11.04 on secondary (IDE) hard drive

I've worked with Wubi before, and I liked it so much, I decided to go full scale with Ubuntu. However, I think I've missed an option in the setup, because Grub has now taken over my bootloader. I tried reverting to the Windows loader with EasyBCD, but booting Ubuntu from there is impossible, since it doesn't show itself. By the way, I don't really understand EasyBCD, so that makes it even harder. Anyway, what I'm trying to accomplish here, is to get a bootloader which uses Windows as default and Ubuntu as secondary OS. How do I do this?

Ubuntu :: Remove GRUB And NOT Restore The Windows Bootloader

Oct 31, 2010

Is there any way to simply remove grub? Does GRUB reside in a specific partition? Do I have to just delete the partition that has GRUB on it?The way my bootable partitions work is something like this.

1)Installed Vista

2)Installed Ubuntu

3)Thought I removed GRUB

4)Put in new HDD(1) and installed Win7 onto it

5)Put in another new HDD(2) and put another Win7 onto that (but I disconnected every other HDD so that the bootloader would be written onto the new HDD(2). When I have all my HDD's plugged in now, I get a GRUB load error (I think it's 21).

OpenSUSE Install :: Empty User List Pre-logon

Dec 14, 2009

Sometimes my user list is empty on start-up. When it happens the buttons beneath the empty list (shutdown, suspend and restart), are not responding. As a work-around I login to the first terminal as root to restart the machine and usually my normal user account appears back on the list. This morning the reboot work-around didn't work any more..

Ubuntu Installation :: Remove GRUB, Restore Windows Bootloader?

Jan 15, 2010

Basically, I used a USB stick to run ubuntu 9.10 live, then tried to install to an external 500gb HDD connected with a Sharkoon Drivelink USB adaptor. The installation went fine, but I get a GRUB error 21 when booting a lot of the time. I figure this is due to the way in which the drive is connected. I am a complete noob, and I want to just ove GRUB completely and restore my Vista bootloader. Unfortunately, I do not have an installation disk as my laptop didn't come with one, and none of the others I have other PC's are the same version (home premium 32-bit).If you know of a way to fix the GRUB issue/sso I can use the external drive I would love to hear them too, but the main aim of this thread is to help me remove GRUB and restore the windows bootloader. If any more information is needed, just ask and I will provide it.HP Touchsmart TX2-1010Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bitExternal HDD:Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 SATAII (with jumper set for 150mbps)

OpenSUSE Install :: Getting The 11.4 With No Bootloader?

Apr 18, 2011

Playing on a test rig here and I want to install openSUSE in an already multi-boot Ubuntu family environment. All the 'Buntus play together nicely with grub 1.89, learning the ins-and-outs of which appears to be a lifetime endeavor.SUSE appears to be still on legacy grub, and I don't want that to take over from (almost) grub 2.0. It's fairly trivial to add things to the newer grub. Question is can I install SUSE and tell it NOT to install a bootloader at all?

OpenSUSE Install :: Multiboot System, But Last Bootloader Install Doesn't Work?

Feb 16, 2010

I've got a multiboot system with Windozin the first drive and first partition like everyone recommends. I have several distro's and just let them install their bootloaders, but always on hd0 mbr. I installed Debian 5.0.1 this way and it wouldn't boot, so I got SGD to "fix" it, which it said was successful, but all I get is a partition doesn't exist when I try to boot. I put Debian on /dev/sdb3, I loaded Linux Rescueand mounted sdb3 and verified that its menu.lst had the right boot numbers (hd1,2). fdisk even showns /dev/sdb3 as boot as shown by the asterisk under the boot column. Should I do a complete reinstall of grub, maybe using one of the other distro's as the holder of grub? At one time they did all the grub launching as each addition was made

OpenSUSE Install :: Revert To Windows Bootloader To Install Win7 SP1?

Feb 25, 2011

Currently I am running a dual boot with Windows 7 and openSUSE 11.3. Windows has two partitions, one for the system partition and another for the OS. I have 3 Linux partitions (swap, root, and home). Obviously I am running GRUB to boot, but this seems to be impacting my ability to install Windows 7 SP1. I would like to revert back to the Windows boot loader, install the Service Pack, and then revert back to GRUB. How do I do this?

OpenSUSE Install :: Use 11.1 DVD To Just Reinstall The Bootloader?

May 1, 2011

I need to reinstall the 11.4 bootloader (but to the root partition instead of the MBR). There used to be an automated repair GUI on the 11.1 DVD, but it seems to be gone from the 11.4 distro. Is it someplace special I can find it? Can I use my 11.1 DVD to just (easily) reinstall the bootloader? I am *not* a command-line person!!

OpenSUSE Install :: Configuring The Bootloader Screen?

Mar 14, 2010

I have called, I hope correctly, the first screen you see after the BIOS details - "the bootloader screen". If that is not the correct term, then I mean the screen against which GRUB displays your various OS boot options. For some reason, the bootloader screen only occupies the middle half of my widescreen monitor. The bootsplash screens and the login screen which come after it display correctly. I think they are controlled by the command vga=0x348Is there a way of stretching the bootloader screen so that, like the bootsplash screens and login screen, it extends to the full width of the monitor

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 - How To Skip Bootloader Installation

Aug 3, 2010

I just upgraded two 11.2 installations. One I easily managed from the dvd the other I had to install anew as the cd didn't offer the possibility of upgrading. While I appreciated the many improvements in desktop stability I found I am non very satisfied of the installer.

It became minimal and just does what IT wants and not what I want anymore. I miss the possibility of choosing desktops, programmes and settings during installation. Most of all I miss the possibility of choosing the bootloader and its location. I have a multi boot multi disk machine and I prefer to modify entries by hand so i never install the loader but add the new entry in the grub but this was not possible and it made just a mess erasing completely all other entries....

Booting has always been a great problem for one of my machines and I'm not going to upgrade it if thisi is the result. Is there a way of going back to the old options (no loader?) Why are the new installer always "easier" but less flexible for a user who's not geek but not even a newbie? Why does it have always to be more "Windows like"

OpenSUSE Install :: Password On The Grub Bootloader On 11.2 Box?

May 23, 2011

I'm trying to install a password on the Grub bootloader on my 11.2 box. I ran yast2 bootloader then clicked on bootloader options, then the checkbox for using a password, and then typed in my password twice. It isn't working. I've tried various different passwords to see if something was throwing it off like special characters or too many characters but no matter what I do I can't use the password to unlock the bootloader on bootup. It just tells me that I entered the incorrect password.

OpenSUSE Install :: Changing Bootloader Location ?

Aug 6, 2011

Because I had Windows installed first, the bootloader was located in that drives master boot record and the openSUSE drive was slaved to it. Now that Windows is gone and the Linux drive is bigger and faster (although the same Ide (pata) ata rating. There are no sata devices in my system.) I want to reverse the master slave relationship between those two drives and put the bootloader on the openSUSE drive.

At the moment a single instance of openSUSE 11.4 is the only operating system installed on the computer I'm talking about.

What procedure should follow to accomplish that?

OpenSUSE Install :: Repair Bootloader In Opensuse 11.3?

Aug 14, 2010

I have made the mistake of installing windows XP on one of my drive after I've upgraded to opensuse 11.3 on my other drive. Now, my computer is always booting to XP and doesn't load Grub anymore... I guess I should have seen it coming I previously had similar problems with my boot loader which I could resolve using the Repair boot loader utility distributed with the installation DVD. Apparently, this utility is not distributed anymore with opensuse 11.3... so I'm a little lost. I'd like a bit of advise before I start messing with Yast / boot loader and potentially break everything.

My system is setup as follows: sda is partitioned into sda1 (swap), sda2 (root / in ext4), sd3 (/home in ext3) and sd4 (/windows/F in NTFS containing virtual machines) sdb is partitioned into sdb1 (my Windows XP install in NTFS) and sdb2 (another storage drive in NTFS).

OpenSUSE Install :: Bootloader Doesn't Seem To Be Installed Alright?

Dec 27, 2009

Since I had a little time on my hand over christmas break, I decided to do my sister a favor and install linux on her computer (consentually, mind you). But so far, I've caused nothing but trouble, since I can't get Suse to boot. I've reinstalled over and over and over, but everytime I install and reboot, the computer complains that there is no operating system installed.

After a while of reinstalling, I tried to install a boot loader from the live cd instead, but when I open yast to do this, it compains that 'because of the partitions, the bootloader can't be installed properly'.

I've tried pretty much about everything, but nothing seems to work.
