OpenSUSE Install :: Windows Disabled My Partition - Error 15 File Not Found

Sep 10, 2009

Getting back my OpenSuse OS/partition.

Background: I had a dual boot system, Win XP followed by OpenSuse 11.1 install. I tweaked it a lot to get my wireless card and Nividia card working. Finally got it to a stage where it was working great.

What happened: For some reasons windows XP had some issues and I had to reinstall the OS. Since I have the openSuse install DVD lying around I took the bold step of reinstalling windows knowing that it will blow away the Grub from MBR. However, during the windows setup, the setup said something about setting the Linux partition as inactive (I think so). Unfortunately, I don't remember the exact message.

After finishing the XP install, I booted in with the XP Cd and tried the repair option to repair the MBR. That really messed up the MBR. So much so that booting back with XP boot CD and running fixmbr didn't work. Finally reinstalled windows again.

Now I am not sure what should I do next.

I tried using the superGrubDisk but it gives the following error: Error 15 File not found.

OpenSUSE Install :: Black Screen With Error 15: File Not Found

Oct 8, 2010

I managed to get following config up and running very nicely with an 11.3 installation. But recently I did a clean install of the OS and hoping to preserve my data in the home HD (2TB) partition I did the following operation which resulted in black screen screen with error 15: file not found.

Config: one SSD root (90GB) and swap (30Gb) second HD for home (2TB)

During the installation I reformatted and mounted the SSD with root and swap as above. I left the home HD (2TB) unformatted and mounted as home.

When I did my first boot up, it worked perfectly - Even Fire Fox booted up with my recovered pages as of my last install! However after installing my multi-media codecs, and security updates, etc. to the fresh install I rebooted the system only to discover that I am unable to get past GRUB!

I don't have to lose my data every time I do a fresh install to new ISO release.

OpenSUSE Install :: Error 15 - File Not Found After Update 11.3 On A Dual-boot PC With Ubuntu 9.10

Oct 22, 2010

Recently I've installed Open Suse 11.3 along with Ubuntu 9.10 on my PC ( made it a dual-boot OS ). This morning while logged in, in Open Suse 11.3, found out that there were important update for kernel in Yast. So, did the update and then required to restart the PC. In the Grub/boot menu, I chose to log-in to Open Suse 11.3, but after a while it returned with " Error 15, file not found ". Luckily I was able to log-in in Ubuntu 9.10. Assumed that Error 15 is always related to misplaced or wrong configuration of Grub in the partition, I did several searching via Google, and found this possible solution HowTo Boot into openSUSE when it won't Boot from the Grub Code on the Hard Drive . So I tried the " Broken Grub menu: boot to the menu, drop to a console and boot openSUSE direct " method. But rightly after the " find /boot/grub/menu.lst " command as instructed in the solution, it returned with ( hd0,0 ) and ( hd0,4 ). Why there are 2 bootloader in the Grub ? Which bootloader should I choose ? And for convenience, here is my " menu.lst " folder that I get via Terminal in Ubuntu 9.10 :

$ cat /boot/grub/menu.lst
# menu.lst - See: grub(8), info grub, update-grub(8)
# grub-install(8), grub-floppy(8),

OpenSUSE Install :: Mednafen - Configure: Error: *** OpenGL Header File Not Found

Jul 22, 2011

I'm having some problems compiling mednafen on Suse 11.4. When I run configure, things work fine until I get the following series of errors:

[Code]...

configure: error: *** OpenGL header file not found! I've seen references in a few places that these type ("Present But Cannot Be Compiled") can usually be ignored, but in this case ./configure fails and I can't make. I am unsure why this is, as I've installed mednafen on Suse 11.4 before and it runs fine. I've tried installing various OpenGL-related packages that I can find (Mesa, freeglut, glib, etc) but nothing seems to solve the problem

OpenSUSE Install :: Error Re-installing Windows On Existing Partition

Feb 7, 2011

What just happened was that I was experiencing some serious blue screen errors in Windows all of a sudden, so I loaded up my recovery partition for windows, and ran the "Restore complete system function". At some point, it had to restart, and I got the BIOS error "Unable to detect operating system". Eventually I got openSUSE to work again by reinstalling it using my DVD. However, now, whenever I load my windows partition, I get a windows error that says it cannot configure Windows on my hardware! The furthest it gets is a blue Windows screen that says "Please wait while Windows continues to configure your hardware."

My windows version is Vista, and I use openSUSE 11.3 as my primary partition. My question is this: How can I re-install Windows onto my partition? I have a recovery partition setup still, but I'm afraid that the Restore Complete System function will mess with my linux partitions again!

All I want Windows for is to play WoW! Running WoW through Wine is fail on my laptop for some reason, its far too slow and problematic. Please help me... some Linux forums just trashed me for using Windows at all, but its my only option available for my particular spec of computer to play this game, so that type of advice doesn't help me much. Feasible alternatives to a Windows partition would be nice, but Wine clearly doesn't work for me like I desire.

OpenSUSE Install :: "Error 15: File Not Found" On Login

Apr 30, 2010

I ran a full package upgrade and then a distribution upgrade yesterday on a Suse 10 system to bring it up to date. I think it worked out fine, except the boot loader (Grub) reports error 15: file not found on attempted boot.

In the other example, the boot loader was configured to look for the now non-existent kernel and i imagine mine is doing the same: the last example was fixed with a live disc that i dont have any more, and i cant make one because i dont have access to a dvd burner.

My question is this: how do I find what version of the kernel I'm using, and how do I configure the Grub boot loader so it'll work as desired? I've been trying every possible option for hours and hours and I really can't afford to lose my information on there.

CentOS 5 :: Error 15 - File Not Found After Fresh Install Of 5.3 With LVM

Oct 19, 2009

I have just done a reinstall of Centos 5.3 on a dedicated server (via a KVM). My partition arrangement was the default presented to me by the installer:

As you can see, I'm using LVM for everything other than /boot (I need to use LVM for an app I am testing).

On reboot, I get the following:

[QUOTE]

It looks like it can't find vmlinuz-2.6.18-128.el5 in /boot.

I have rebooted using the Centos Install Disk 1 and gone in to rescue mode. Rescue mode mounted my / under /mnt/sysimage, from there I could see that /boot had been mounted from /dev/sda1 as it should be.

However, there was no initrd.image or /vmlinuz-2.6.18-128.el5 under /boot or /boot/grub. Shouldn't the CentOS installer have created these?

Is there anyway I can recover this installation?

OpenSUSE :: RTorrent - Apache Error Log Fills With File Not Found

Dec 3, 2010

I've just checked my apache error log and it's filled with this:
Code:
[error] [client 127.0.0.1] File does not exist: /srv/www/htdocs/announce
Every 8 minutes or so.

I'm running rTorrent as daemon on same machine, and I suspect it's trying to access something like http://localhost/announce. But that's just my guess, is it some misconfiguration of rTorrent, and how do I fix that? Or should I just ignore all those errors.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installed OpenSUSE 11.3 And Can't Boot - Error 15: File Not Found

Nov 16, 2010

Decided I'd like to take a look at OpenSUSE and installed onto my desktop. Already successfully dual booting Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows XP (which I keep purely for iTunes). When I start the PC the Ubuntu grub menu showing Ubuntu and Windows options has been replaced by a Suse-branded screen showing something that looks (to my untrained eye) like a grub menu. Ubuntu and Suse are listed. If I select Ubuntu I am shown a dos screen with "Error 15: file not found". I am then taken to the old Ubuntu grub screen but trying to boot Ubuntu from that menu returns the same error. I know all the data is still there - I can mount the drive in Suse and view all my documents.

I have searched the forums and tried to follow some of the instructions given in response to similar threads but I'm afraid I didn't get very far. Please assume that I have NO PRIOR KNOWLEDGE of Linux! I really know nothing about it and am only just getting to grips with basic terminal commands. Goodness knows why I thought OpenSUSE would be a good idea... I found instructions for running Boot Info Script and these are the results:

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.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Resize Windows Partition ?

Jan 5, 2010

The openSUSE 11.2 installation disk doesn't want to let me resize my NTFS-based WinXP partition; it just says that the fs is inconsistent and that I should check this issue in windows... But even though I've scheduled diskcheck to run after a reboot, it doesn't! Is there some way of "forcing" the diskcheck to run upon startup, or how else can I resolve this issue (without re-installing my entire system)?

After having successfully downloaded and burned 11.3 ISO to DVD, i'm off to doing dangerous things: trying to install this on my work laptop which has Win XP SP3. when the partitioning stuff comes up, it suggests deleting the windows partition.
i have tried various options in terms of editing/resizing existing partitions and have always gotten errors. Just want to confirm: if I delete the windows partition, i'll lose my Win XP and all the data i have. Is that right?

Ubuntu Installation :: Resizing Windows Partition - Install Files On A Non Windows NTFS Partition

Jul 22, 2010

Now however its not letting me resize the Windows partition, mounted or unmounted. It currently occupies the whole disk. I would rather not reinstall the whole thing over again, but I will if I have to. Isnt there an easy way to shrink a Windows partition? I swear Ive done this before and it wasnt this hard. Could it be a problem with the Mint installer that now asks me if I want to unmount my disks before it goes into install mode? On this PC I would like to have

Windows XP
Mint
Ubuntu-Studio
Edubuntu
One of the E17 OSs
Puppy Linux (to create a remix)

I am probably going to put most of the linux partitions on the second laptop drive but I want to install files on a non WIndows NTFS partition.

OpenSUSE Install :: Error 22: No Such Partition

Nov 27, 2009

my desktop has two hdd(sda+sdb recognized as (hd1)and (hd0)respectively..)sda has vista on it. sda is comprised of several simple volumes which vista calls dynamic ntfs..sdb has four primary partitions: sdb1; sdb5,sdb6, sdb7. sdb5,6,7 are extended partitions,together put as sdb2.

sdb5 for swap, sdb6 for (/)(does this mean root partition? but /root and /home are on the same level..), sdb7 for /home; this is suse 11.0.I delete the last simple volume of sda, and divided it into three partitions: sda8,9,10. sda8 for swap, 9 formatted as ext3 for /home, 10 formatted as ext4 for /.And I want to keep the current grub, so I chose the boot loader location to "Boot from Root Partition" in Boot Loader Settings. At the last minute of installtion, a dialog tells me:

Code:

grub> setup --stage2=/boot/grub/stage2 --force-lba (hd1,9) (hd1,9)
Error 22: No such partition
grub>quit
(hd1,9) is surely sda10 which is mounted to '/'. why would grub not recognize this partition?

This error message always shows up whenever I boot to "rescue installed system" from dvd and try to reinstall grub to root partition, ie. (hd1,9). I tried to put one entry in the menu.lst of suse 11.0 :

Code:

title openSUSE 11.2
rootnoverify (hd1,9)
chainloader +1

But instead of boot into 11.2, it gives me a message "No such a partition"Until now the only successful boot into suse is through the dvd rescue mode-> boot into installed systems. later tries all failed.. with a message "modprobe: FATAL: Could not open.ko", the screen freezed, number led indicator and caps lock led both flashing on and off. I had to press the RESET on the box..

the good thing is suse 11.0 is still bootable, the current grub not crumbled..but the strange is grub cannot be installed. maybe it's due to ext4 format? In 11.0 if I try to mount /dev/sda10 to /mnt, it would say unknown file system 'ext4'.

Grub immediately takes over upon booting but doesn't detect any partitions. I tried booting from an opensuse cd and changing the boot order priority, but grub still comes up. I don't have a windows 7 installation disc
