OpenSUSE Install :: Added New Hard Disk And Opensuse Doesn't Boot?

Aug 31, 2011

I've recently added a new hard disk and due to mother board controllers this new hard disk is known as sda.Before that my boot partition was /dev/sda3 and know this changed to sdb3.Whenever grub menu appears and I choose opensuse,it can't find /dev/sda3 .It seems that I should edit menu.lst or change boot loader parameter.something like root (hd1,2).But I don't how I can do this with opensuse boot loader.Though I could do this with CentOS easily.

OpenSUSE Install :: Will Not Boot Without An Install Disk?

May 14, 2010

Have a coworker that plays around with computers. He built a dual processor, 64 bit with 64mb of ram on a server board. Do not have the specs at this time. He installed purchased version of Suse 8.0 server. Using KDE. (Don't know why he went this route. He is not setting up a server.) His problem is it will only boot from a CD. He can take out CD and it runs ok. A friend told me that there is a way to check the master boot file, but I do not know how to do it. I am learning trying to learn Unix/Linux programming. I can do some commands in terminal.

OpenSUSE Install :: Boot Disk, Live CD, How To Connect To Internet?

Mar 21, 2010

I successfully booted OpenSuse 11.2 from DVD. But I could not configure my wireless internet connection. YAST said it couldn't configure it because something else was controlling that (Network Manager? something like that)How can I configure this. Related issue. When booting from DVD is there a way to save configuration settings so I don't have to start from scratch the next time I boot from DVD?

OpenSUSE Install :: Disk Read Error - Can't Boot Windows ?

Apr 8, 2011

I have multi-version Kernels on a Dual Boot WinXP / openSUSE 11,3 box. It's been a LONG time since I needed to boot to Win XP and now that I find that I can't get to it, I can not say for sure what I did to break it. Looking back, I suspect that the method I used for the recent removal of one of the Kernel versions may have been innappropiate. Rather than unchecking in versions/package groups I may have just removed the unwanted kernel in the package list. Not sure. I've tried dinking around with menu.lst and Yast Boot Loader to no success. I get errors depending on what I messed with. Didn't try to reinstall grub until I checked here for help with a fix.

Here's some info:

OpenSUSE Install :: No Disk Seen When Booting The Disk In Another System?

Jan 2, 2010

My dual proc, dual core Opteron MSI Master2FAR motherboard failed, and I try to boot a disk, used on this board as boot disk, on an Intel based Gigabyte GA-965-DS3. Both systems are x86_64 architecture.

The OS is on both systems is openSUSE 11.1.

On booting the disk on the Gigabyte, the disk is seen correctly by the BIOS, but not by the OS, and there is no /dev/sdX; no /dev/disk/... either. I am taken to a login shell from the ramdisk.

When I just mount this disk on the Gigabyte (booted with the Gigabyte's original boot disk) everything seems fine. No suprise to me, since the disk was fine, and was unmounted gracefully and physically taken off the MSI before the board failed.

I think that the cause lies in the fact that the harddisk controller on the Gigabyte is different from the MSI, and the driver for that controller is not available at boot time.

I have two questions:

- is my assumption correct, or is something else going on?

- if I am right, is there a way to get this disk booting on the Gigabyte (or on another system, for that matter)?

You might want to ask why I want to boot this disk on the Gigabyte in the first place, since I can mount it and see all data on it. I have a reason for that, but telling that story would make this topic too long, and it's too off-topic. Most certainly I will get to that in another topic.

OpenSUSE Install :: Re-install OpenSUSE From Hard Disk Using The Terminal?

Sep 29, 2010

I'm running openSUSE 11.3 and screwed some things up so that I can't install anything, including UNetbootin. So I decided to completely reinstall. I'm limited to using my hard drive as there's no CD/DVD or floppy drives installed on the machine and BIOS does not support booting from USB.

I found these instructions - Install any Linux distro directly from hard disk without burning any DVD - Just Another Linux Lover Blog

From the terminal enter these commands

sudo mkdir /distro
sudo chmod `whoami`:`whoami`
cp MYLINUX.iso /distro/distro.iso
Now extract Linux_kernel & Ram_disk to /distro#
Open /boot/grub/menu.lst
#ADD NEW ENTRY#
title Install Linux
root (hdX,X)
kernel /distro/Linux_kernel
initrd /distro/Ram_disk

Reboot and select "Install Linux" from grub. Blog Widget by LinkWithin

Creating the folder "distro" on root was easy and went smoothly. I can't seem to make the second 'whoami' command work, though. I copied-and-pasted "sudo chmod `whoami`:`whoami`" into the terminal. It asks me for the root password, I enter that and then get

chmod: missing operand after `holly:holly'
Try `chmod --help' for more information.

I didn't see anyone reply in the comments of that page saying they had trouble with it, so I think I'm just being an idiot. One person did suggest adding distro at the end on another page and it gets me

chmod: invalid mode: `holly:holly'
Try `chmod --help' for more information.

OpenSUSE :: Hard Disk Thrashing, Esp After Boot?

Apr 24, 2011

Acer Travelmate laptop, 1.3GHz Pentium M, 12MB Ram.pensuse 11.4 (upgraded from 11.3)Vanilla install, not running anything special, always startup and shutdown from scratch, never sleepFor several minutes after KDE appears and I open an app (any app, e.g. Chrome) the hard disk is going nuts. WTF is it doing and how do I stop it? Also some programs take years to start, e.g. digicam took TEN minutes the other day even after waiting a while after booting, the disk thrashing the whole time. But in 11.3 it started almost instantly.

OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Install 12.1 M5 From Hard Disk - Error - No Repository Found

Sep 13, 2011

I would like to test 12.1 M5 on my real hardware, so I have special for this purpose two additional partitions (sda2 (to install milestone) and sda3 (to store installation ISO files)). I am running my stable 11.4 with Grub on sda1.

I do not like to burn DVDs just for short test of one milestone, so I was used to download DVD ISO, to unpack it to sda3 partition with all its files, then I changed Grub to boot install Linux from sda3. Installation complains there is no DVD or CD, then I chose to force installation from hard disk and select sda3 partition and select root directory "/". As I was used to from 11.4 this will start installation as it would be started from DVD.

But I think the problem has appeared since 12.1, where I get message: No repository found. (on sda3 / ), so the installation does not start.

I know this is not official way to install openSuse, but it worked before, and it was fast and easy for me, to install from hard disk.

Ubuntu :: Install Customized ISO With DM-Crypt Boot Disk?

Jan 7, 2011

I just bought a new laptop which will be running SSD (Corsair 120GB) as the boot drive and would like to migrate my OS to the new system. One of my requirements is full-disk encryption. I work with proprietary client data and need to encrypt the new drive, its swap partition, everything except for /boot. I've read instructions for doing this from the alternate install CD, but my OS is disturbingly customized (started out as 10.04) and it would take months to rebuild everything. I keep remastersys (-dist) ISOs to ensure I don't have to go through that process, but the ubiquity installer does not appear to have the option of doing disk-level crypt during the installation process. I can boot the ISO into CLI, but don't know how to run the alternate installer from there.

Ubuntu :: Install - Disk Partition Effective But No Boot?

Feb 16, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu on my laptop (x200s, XPpro with 230 Gb), and created a 30Gb partition therefore. At the end of the install, the screen remained orange for a while, without any disk activity. I forced the laptot to reboot, but Ubntu was no option when the machine restarted. However, my XP partition has been reduced by 30 Gb. Does anybody have an idea about what I should do to either get Ubuntu installed or recover the disk space?

General :: Boot Debian Install Disk From Floppy?

May 4, 2010

I scored a Dell poweredge 6300 from a local pawn shop. It has the capability to boot from cd-rom, but apparently not with isolinux, which is what the debian installer cd uses. I was able to boot to UBCD411 (Ultimate Boot CD, which uses syslinux), but didn't see any option to boot to a CD (maybe I'm missing something here?). I tried using the boot floppy from this site. I didn't expect it to work (it's from the Woody era), and it did not. I got a message that says SYSLINUX ver.XXXX CBIOS boot failed. I went to [URL].. and looked for a boot floppy image for Lenny, but apparently it doesn't exist. I did however find the boot floppy image for Etch.

To be honest, even if I did find the Lenny floppy boot image, I'm not sure how to use it to point the system to the installer CD. So, I have two questions:

1) Does anyone know of a boot floppy image for Lenny, or if I could use the Etch boot floppy image?

2) How would one boot from floppy, then point the system to the installer CD?

System info:
(4) Xeon Pentium 2 processors 500 Mhz
(6) UltraSCSI hard drives
(1) SCSI cd-rom drive
(1) SCSI dvd-rom drive
(1) Floppy drive
(1) 10/100 NIC

I'm open to any other suggestions as to how I could install Debian Lenny on this machine.

OpenSUSE Install :: Moving Opensuse From One Hard Disk To Another?

Aug 30, 2010

Recently I was working on something on my windows partition (on the same HD as opensuse), and all the sudden windows stopped working and I got some bad sectors on my HD.

Now, my opensuse installation is on the same HD as windows, but I need to get rid of that HD soon because it's starting to get worse (and I think opensuse is randomly crashing because of it).

Is there any way to transfer my opensuse parititon/os to another hard drive?

OpenSUSE Install :: SUSE 11.4 ISO Disk Install Fails

Mar 23, 2011

Have burned a DVD of 11.4 64bit and am trying to install alongside Windows 7. The boot from the disk starts, I get a SUSE splash screen and initial menu. I check install source (F4) is set to CDROM. When I then select "install" the kernel loads, but then it goes wrong. Whatever I do I get "No repository found". It's almost as though, having loaded the kernel from the DVD, the installer can no longer see the disk.

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot Disk Image For Install On AMD RAID PC?

Sep 3, 2010

I tried installing Ubuntu 10.04 WS on my PC but it did not see any disks to install on. I believe this is because my drives are all configured as RAID. My mobo is an Asus M3A78-EMH HDMI AM2+ socket with an Athlon 2X 5000+ CPU. The chipset is AMD 780G. I have the BIOS configured for RAID drives and I already run Win XP x32 and Win 7 x64 on it. My boot drive is configured as 'RAID READY' and I have 2 RAID 1 disks consisting of pairs of SATA drives.

From what I have researched it seems that with some tuning it should be possible to install Ubuntu 10.04 but I have little Linux experience and don't want to mess up my existing drives. I have installed Linux before a few times and run it but never with RAID. Is anyone aware of an existing disk image that I will be able to install from on my system or would it be possible for someone to create one for me to use?

Ubuntu Installation :: Disk Boot Failure After Fresh Install

Oct 16, 2010

After buying a new PC, I decided to "reorganize" my former PC as follows:Initially it has been a dual (SATA) disk dual boot PC- one disk for each OS, while XP was fully installed on a single NTFS partition. Using Gparted I shrunk the XP partition, and created some Linux partitions. I've verified that the XP partition (sda1) is bootable. Afterwards, I removed the other (former Linux) disk from the computer. While doing so, I had to temporarily disconnect cables from both drives. Finally, I fresh installed Mint 9 (Ubuntu 10.04 derivative), on my pre-prepared Linux partitions. Installation completed flawlessly, and during the install, I've noticed that GRUB2 has been installed on sda. Rebooted and got "Disk boot failure" error.

I've checked the BIOS and noticed that the (single) drive was not recognized.
I manually tested from the BIOS and located the drive as IDE3. Saving the new configuration (F10) and rebooting- the HD gain is not identified (the CMOS battery is fine- keeps time).

Booting a live CD I can see and access all above partitions.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04.1 Install Fails To Boot - Out Of Disk Error

Dec 27, 2010

Downloaded Ubuntu 10.04.1 Desktop AMD64, tried to install it to a cleand HDD using the whole HDD, i.e. gave it permission to use the whole HDD. Installation process appeared to run OK but when it came to the restart it just fired up the message
error: out of disk
grub rescue>

I've searched this forum and found numerous references to these error messages but cannot make head nor tail of the diagnostic suggestions. Apart from anything else they suggest strings of command lines which I don't understand and can't enter anyway since they don't correspond to my keyboard layout (if I hit > or ) something completely different appears on the screen). Is there someone here who can provide a step-by-step solution in lay language? Or is there such a thing as a bootable file which can be downloaded and inserted into my CD drive to correct this problem?

Fedora Installation :: Disk Boot Failure After Fresh Install From Live CD.12?

Feb 15, 2010

I've run the install to hard drive program three times over and each time I get "disk boot failure". I believe I've got Grub to install to the mbr but I am not sure.

System:
Barton 3200+ with 1GB of DDR1
Asus A7V333
High Point hard disk controller

other items

All the hard drives are hooked to the High Point controller. It recognizes all of them that have power hooked up and read/writes to them. Two have 98SE installs, the third is where I'm trying to install Fedora 12 to get away from some problems I'm having with 98SE.

The BIOS is set up to boot from the "SCSI device" which means it's booting from the High Point controller. The High Point lets me set a boot mark, which, when set to the Fedora drive, yields the disk boot failure no matter what I do to it.
