OpenSUSE Hardware :: Win7 Install - Grub And Mounting SDB Errors

Jan 4, 2010

I decided to install windoze 7 and it finally worked. It was complicated, I have two HDD's on cable select and the one I wanted M$ installed on was second in the series. So I changed that around and it finally installed. I then changed it back to the way it was and now of course grub works for SUSE but not M$. I get error #13. My Windows drive also does not show up in sysinfo:/. I went to terminal and ran fdisk -l and

Code:
Disk /dev/sda: 80.0 GB, 80000000000 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9726 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x0004924b
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 262 2104483+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda2 263 9726 76019580 83 Linux

Disk /dev/sdb: 472.3 GB, 472345632768 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 57426 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x30ceb02f

Disk /dev/sdb doesn't contain a valid partition table. And that is the outcome.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 And Win7 Dual Boot - Grub Lost?

Apr 1, 2011

I am trying to Dual-boot Windows & and OpenSUSE 11.4, and have run into walls all over the place. Here is what I did:

1. Windows 7 was already installed. (Don't like it, freezes all the time)
2. Installed OpenSUSE using default partition options.
3. Booted into OpenSUSE with no problem
4. Tried booting into Windows, no joy.
5. Got that figured out, now I can get into Windows.
6. GRUB is gone, so now I can't get back into OpenSUSE.

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot With Win7 On Raid0 - Install 10.04 It Will Hang And Eventually Errors Out?

Apr 18, 2010

New to Linux and am wanting to install ubuntu 9.10 or 10.04 on a single separate 80gb drive. I have Windows installed on 2 80gb drives in Raid0 (nvidia controller) .I have installed 9.10 but Win7 will not load from the bootloader : gives me the error invalid signature. I've looked around and tried a few things to get it to load with no success.. is the Raid0 the issue?

If I try to install 10.04 it will hang and eventually errors out, I believe on the raid drive because it comes up with dev/mapper/nvidia_hhfbdccf1..

Ubuntu Installation :: Installed Alongside Win7 But GRUB Doesn't Appear; Just Boots Win7

Dec 31, 2010

Just installed Ubuntu 10.10 onto my new netbook from a USB stick. The laptop came with Win7 Starter, which I kept on a small partition. Installation was apparently successful, but when I start up the computer, it will go straight to Win7 and GRUB doesn't appear.

General :: Grub Loading Stage 1.5 Error 21 Win7 / OpenSUSE

Jul 28, 2011

A few days ago I installed openSUSE 11.4 on a 1TB HP external hard drive. I have some very important files for school and personal work on my main hard drive, running windows 7, so I made sure the installation only affected my external hard drive. With the external hard drive plugged in it boots just fine but when it is un-plugged it says Grub loading stage 1.5. Error 21 and it won't do anything. This kind of pisses me off because there were no warnings and nothing was supposed to happen to my main hard drive. But this has already happened and now I want to know if there is any way I could fix it so I can boot windows 7 normally and still boot openSUSE with the external hard drive plugged in.

Ubuntu :: Win7 Option Not Found On Grub After Kubuntu 10.10 Install

Apr 5, 2011

I had my Laptop, a Dell Inspiron 1520, running Windows 7 and Windows XP - I had a few gigs of unallocated space, so I decided to install Kubuntu alongside it, worked fine no problem, with the exception of running out of space very quickly - I got fed up with it, and installed Kubuntu over the Windows XP partition (around 80gigs, and the first OS to be installed on the computer). After I installed it.

All was working perfectly until I rebooted to discover I am missing my Windows 7 boot option in GRUB, before I had to press Windows XP Embedded and it opened the boot dialog, but here I dont get the option, is there a GRUB 2 option I can change to allow it to show Windows 7? The Computer works perfectly, it's just the GRUB doesn't show Windows 7, and I'm hesitant to format its old partition and reinstall it due to the fact that it may over ride the grub and leave me without Kubuntu access?

Ubuntu Installation :: RAID 0 And Win7 Dual Boot - Grub Cannot Install

Sep 13, 2010

I'm having serious troubles to install ubuntu-10.04.1. My raid is an hardware raid with intel chipset. Note that win7 is already installed and working with my raid. I made some space from windows, to install Ubuntu (40gb). First, I run the installer, everything seems to be fine. I choose to install Ubuntu were there is the most space free (sorry, I'm not sure about the real terms used there).

Then my partition with the vista loader appears. So the installer can see my raid, and should work fine (everything is detected correctly). But once I'm in the end of the installation (around 95%), a pop-up appears, and tells me that Grub can't install in /dev/sda and it's a fatal error. I can choose an another destination, but it doesn't seems to work.

I'm trying to install ubuntu 9.10, downloaded the iso from the site and burned it on a CD, but when I boot from my cdroom drive and choose install ubuntu option I get an ubuntu grey logo for a couple seconds and the I get this error:

I tried downloading a new copy and burning a new CD but still have the same error, no matter what option I choose when booting the CD.

Does anyone now whats the problem? What I'd like to do is install linux as the only OS (formating everything else) not dual boot or anything, I'm new to linux so it'd help if you guys could give me details on how to fix it

I have installed previous versions of ubuntu on this same computer but using the wizard inside windows.

Mar 4, 2011

I have 2 hard disks. sda,sdb

In sda, I have 4 partitions, and I have windows 7 in one of the extended partitions [not in the primary partition].

In sdb, I have 3 partitions. 2 for storage, and 1 10GB drive for Ubuntu. Again, Ubuntu is not of a primary partition.

I had ubuntu 10.04 running on that for a long time. However, I wanted to reinstall ubuntu and use 10.10.This is what I did EXACTLY:Booted from Ubuntu install CD

Chose advanced istall

Selected sdb3 for Ubuntu

I installed GRUB2 on the SAME partition as Ubuntu aka sdb3 Installed then rebooted

I can boot into Ubuntu fine, but whenever I select Windows 7 bootloader from the GRUB menu, the screen goes black, and my PC reboots.

Boot Info:

Code:
Boot Info Script 0.55 dated February 15th, 2010 [code]....

ls: reading directory sda6/: Input/output error

I have tried the testdisk/update-grub method, but it didn't work.

OpenSUSE Install :: Suse11.4 - Clear Up A Free Space In HD To Install Win7 ?

Jul 9, 2011

Just installed and started to use the suse11.4 two weeks ago when my Win7 broke down. Now I got a new Win7 recovery disc from my laptop manufacturer, and want to install a Win7 accompanying with the suse11.4.

My question is how to clear up a free space in HD to install win7? Currently, I have 3 partitions that are sda1, sda2 and sda3 with space 2G(swap), 20G(root) and 270G(home) respectively. I want to free up half space from sda3 to install Win7, how to do it without delete the data on it? One weird thing is that my HD totally is 320G, but when I installed SUSE, only 300G was usable and the other 20G is missing until now. The fdisk -l command info. is showed below:

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 :: No More Peaceful Coexistence Of Win7?

Dec 24, 2009

If I understand correctly, there is no more "Install Linux as a second OS, and Windows will run as it is. Linux won't disturb it". If Grub is installed on MBR, Windows 7 will not install service pack.

If the MBR is left untouched during the installation of Linux, the active flag has to be switched from Windows's partition to Linux's partition. This again will prohibit Windows 7 from installing a service pack. Thus installing Linux as a second OS and giving the computer to somebody who is not expert in partitioning and booting will lead to trouble if Windows is regularly used. Is this correct, and is there a solution as to not creating worries for the Windows users by installing Linux?

OpenSUSE Install :: Manage To Boot Among Win7 / 11.3 / Ubuntu?

Sep 30, 2010

I'm used to be a Ubuntu user at first,and using its Grub loader so far.Several moths later,I just find that may be Opensuse is another good choice.So I installed Opensuse 11.3 without grub using KDE Livecd version because it cant find the Ubuntu partition while the install process,but the install application can find Win7 installed in my laptop.Soon I logined to Ubuntu and Updated the grub settings in Ubuntu.This grub program in Ubuntu found that there's a Opensuse 11.3 on a partition. So I can login to SUSE by Ubuntu's Grub.But Now I want to use SUSE its own Grub.So what should I do to change my default Grub Loader from Ubuntu's to SUSE's?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 - How To Partition BootCamp Drive For Win7

Feb 22, 2011

I am new to linux , I installed Suse 11.3 a week ago on my new iMac 27'' core i7 and my experience have been wonderful so far. However I would like to install windows beside Suse (for games and windows only apps). I used bootcamp to create a 200G partition for Suse, and I would like to partition the bootcamp further to install windows beside Suse, and choose the OS at boot time using rEFIt. I searched google and couldn't find a guide for installing windows 7 when linux is installed first.

1- I want to learn how to partition the boot camp drive using suse to create an empty partition for windows install.
2- I want to learn how to install windows 7 on the mentioned partition without harming any boot configurations, as I said I want to be able to choose from the OSes at boot time using rEFIt bare in mind that the current installed OSes are suse 11.3 and OS X.

OpenSUSE Install :: Win7 Ate The SUSE After System Restore?

Mar 29, 2011

Hardware issue forced me to restore Win7. Installed EasyBCD to boot into openSUSE, no work. Boot puppy, it shows space where SUSE should be as unallocated space. I think Puppy doesn't see ext4 though. Can't boot live KDE off USB for some reason, though I originally installed from that exact medium. Tried ACPI=off and nomodeset. Error says trouble mounting clic filesystem, mounted as read only. Something like that. Then reboot 120secs, which it never actually does. I don't want to reinstall SUSE if I don't have to.

OpenSUSE Install :: Bcdedit.exe Error On 11.4 Installer In Win7?

Apr 3, 2011

I have an ASUS N82 model notebook with Windows 7 and an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670 GPU. I downloaded the openSUSE-11.4-DVD-x86_64.iso file and tried to run it from my desktop using Daemon Tools LITE software. The install program for the installer started up and let me progress all the way to the final screen at which point it starts extracting files and then I almost immediately get this error message: "Cannot exec bcdedit.exe"

I have done everything I know to do to make sure that I am signed in and running the install as an administrator. I even ran the command prompt as an administrator to make sure that I could run bcdedit.exe myself and it ran fine.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Errors - More Than 1 Grub - The Change Does Not Appear In The Boot Up Menu

Dec 22, 2010

The first is I seem to have 3 GRUB installs. So whilst I update the one from my live session, the change does not appear in the boot up menu. I had installed 10.10 from a CD into a different partition (sda6), but that will not boot, so I have just deleted this and done another grub install and update. The kernel I am using has just been updated from 10.04 to 10.10 too, and it is this that I use and the Grub I have been working on (sda5).
