Been happy with 10.3 and 11.3 almost ready to go over to Ubuntu due to partitioning bug in 11.4. Getting error 1007 on first partition written to disc. Abort, go to live CD keeps getting size of swap file wrong should be 2.00 GB, usually it is 2.01 GB. Deleted parts, tried to create using live CD 11.4. Same result. I create partitions first in 11.3 live CD then install 11.4 without formating. Will this work? Also issue with waening about Grub and disc size over 125 GB. New laptop Acer Aspire, will BIOS be ok. Dont want to lose win7 as OEM.
HP 6930 laptop 120GB HDD It had Win7 64bit installed across the whole drive (100MB sys reserved and C: taking up the rest), I was successfully able to shrink the C: partition to 60GB. So I know have a working copy of Windows 7 on 60GB with 60GB or free space. I boot to 11.4, the installer works great so far and is real fast, I get to the spot where I choose my partitions for nix(tried both auto and manual) then I click OK at the warning to start writing to the disk and ....error 1007, the installer is unable to create the partitions.
I installed today opensuse 11.4 and during the installation i recevied error 1007 when preparing the disk. the partitions then couldn't be read, i had windows 7 installed on it. i tried to fix mbr but no luck. from the rescue i can see the partition by this command fdisk -l
I tried to install openSUSE 11.3 from the Gnome live CD. I had four partitions set already for /boot, /, /home (ext4 all) and swap from a previous failed Linux Mint installation. I installed into them, and formatted them. The /boot partition is primary and pretty well into the disk. The other partitions are logical and at the end of an extended partition which has several partitions before them. There's also an inactive Windows primary partition at the start, and a second disk with a Windows installation and a lot of logical partitions.
After install, it looks like booting into grub works fine, and I get "Error 22: No Such Partition". I then get to the GRUB menu. If I choose openSUSE from there I get:
Booting 'openSUSE 11.3' root (hd1,2) Error 22: No Such Partition
Booting from the live CD it looks like /boot, / and /home contain data, so they must be formatted fine.
I had dual boot win 7 and win xp, when i tried to install suse over win xp partition (i choose to format that partition during installation suse). I dont know how but suse keept win xp, and make 4 new partitions. After that i had to format whole hd, couse with partition magic i could not find that 4 partition. Now i install win 7 and win xp again, but i want to install suse instade of xp. Is there option to install suse. So i would have l 3 Os, i have laptop. Are 3os slowing comp.?
This is the 1st time I am installing SUSE and I wanted to clear some of my doubts:I have the following computer specs:Core i32 GB RAM320 GB HDDATI Mobility Radeon 43301. Is creating a swap partition necessary while installing Suse 11.2?2. Will I be able to install 64-bit version of Suse on my computer?3. Will I be able to run Windows 7 side by side?4. Will I have any compatibility issues with my Display Adapter since I have had problems previously on Ubuntu with my onboard ATi Graphics..
I have installed Windows 7 Professional (64 bit version), and OpenSuse 11.2 (64 bit) on to a newly built Core i5 machine. I installed Windows first, with 3 partitions. The 100MB partition Windows reserves, a C: drive for the operating system and a D: drive for data. Both of these are NTFS partitions. I then installed OpenSuse into the unallocated section at the end of the new disk drive. The Linux partitioner showed OpenSuse in an extended partition, containing a swap / /home and /tmp partition. Both operating systems now appear to be working fine, but I'm worried about the Windows Disk Manager showing that the OpenSuse partions are primary ones, and are not inside an extended partition. It only shows a small amount of unallocated space at the end of the drive as being in an extended partition.
Should I delete OpenSuse and start again? Perhaps creating an extended partition with Windows before trying to reinstall OpenSuse?If I leave the disk as it is, is it likely to continue to dual boot without something unstable occuring? It may just be a Windows problem which will not be fatal, but I'm worried all my files may get scrambled at a some point in the future.
I installed opensuse 11.2 some 6 months ago as an alternative to windows 7, on a 44GB partition. Having become my primary OS, I am looking forward to expand the ext4 partition from 44GB to the maximum possible. I have some 24GB unpartitioned space, and free space on NTSF partitions (one of which could be deleted if necessary). What is the best and safest procedure to perform the partitioning.
I was installing opensuse 11.2 in parallel with windows xp.but during installation suddenly power has gone and after that opensuse is giving me the error message corrupt partition.i am also not able to login in xp. so I decide to reinstall windows, I got the error saying "invalid partition table" after the first restart of windows xp installation.
I tried to use windows system recovery console and committing fixmbr and fixboot commands, but didn't work. i have 2 window partition(1 for windows and 1 for data).i do,nt want to format 2,nd partition.
How can I installed windows?My plan was first to install windows xp, then opensuse again.
I've pre-partitioned my HDD and want to install 11.2 on the second primary partition.However, when using the installer, I can't get Suse to install on the prepared 20gb partition - it keeps insisting it wants to install on the large unallocated section of the drive.
I find the partitioner somewhat hard to use and the answer may be staring me in the face but I can't see it.
I am trying to Install Open Suse 11.3 (burned as an ISO DVD) along with existing Win 2008 R2 OS. When I try to boot from the DVD it just logs in to Win2008 though boot from CD/DVD is enabled in the boot sequence. So i tried to mount the ISO and run from Windows ! BUT I get an error before installation starts telling that Win2008 R2 is not supported in open suse installer! Is there anything I can do to overcome this and install/retain both OS? In fact I am even trying to c hange my win2008 from R2 to Enterprise to see if I can overcome the problem!
I have installed Suse 11.3 on my computer yesterday but since then I have been trying to update it but unable to do so. Everytime I try I get this error message: "system management is locked by the application with pid 6953 (usr/sbin/packagekitd). close this appliaction before trying again."
Before installing OpenSUSE I shrunk my Win 7 partition down in half, then created 3 partitions out of the new free space for /root, /home and /swap. I installed opensuse and when it got to the bootloader section I kept getting Grub error 17 - cannot mount selected partition, and so on. I made sure it was writing to the MBR and also into /boot if that makes a difference, but I did get a prompt that said YaST couldn't make changes to /dev/sda (I'm paraphrasing and can't remember the exact error message). At the moment I have suse installed and my windows partition intact, but no bootloader (not even windows one) so all I can do is boot to Live CD.
Below is the output of fdisk -l. There's quite a few more partitions than it's showing, sda3, sda4 and sda5 are my /home, /root, /swap and the other ones are windows partitions, like the system recovery along with the win7 install. During the suse install I formatted the home and root partitions with ext4 filesystem.
I am seeing a udev error message on booting that I have not seen before with LInux and which I cannot interpret. My Suse 11.4-KDE installation is fairly new. My system is a System 76 PanP4 Pangolin that originally ran Ubuntu.Uname -a returns: Linux linux-zcga 220.127.116.11-0.5-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2011-04-25 21:48:33 +0200 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux. My video is a Geforce 9300M with an nVidia driver.A Google search turns up the fact that similar error messages have been reported with Fedora, Ubuntu, Meego and Gentoo. These frequently have had something to do with sound and in at least one case the advised correction was to reinstall udev. I can see where bugs were filed but with no clear response. Some of these go back several years, the most recent is within the last few months. I did not see a posting that involved Suse.
1.Can someone tell me what these error messages mean? 2.Does this pose a problem?Everything seems to work normally on my system once I am through the boot process. 3.If this is a problem how does one fix it?
I'm trying to do a new net install on my laptop. I can boot into the installation kernel and I enter the http server: (download.opensuse.org) and the folder: /distribution/11.2/repo/oss. The installation proceeds to "System Analysis" and continues 90% of the way to "Build Repository" At this point, I am greeted with a red dialogue box which says: An error occurred during the installation.
I have a Windows print server (Win XP SP2) and a 1 opensuse client. I have setup cups as per the following document:
Printer Sharing: Windows Print Server for Suse/openSUSE Linux Clients [Samba and LPD]
I am not using Samba. The setup went fine, but I am not able to print to it. There are other clients (all Windows) that are printing fine to this print server. The following is what I see in the /var/log/cups/error_log:
[Job 3] recoverable: Unable to connect to printer; will retry in 30 seconds...
I am using DHCP in this LAN. Ping is working fine (client's hosts file updated with the print server's ip address.). This looks like a networking issue.
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:
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 :
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'.
So I was creating a bootable USB stick with Unetbootin and accidentally selected my hard drive instead of the flash drive. My system is still running but I'm pretty sure I hosed it and it's not going to boot again if I restart. When I run cfdisk on my boot drive it says "FATAL ERROR: Cannot open disk drive". When I run cfdisk without a drive specification it says "FATAL ERROR: Bad primary partition 2: Partition ends in the final partial cylinder". I think this problem is probably not specific to OpenSUSE but I figured this is as good a place to start as any.
I'm a Windows 7 user attempting to install openSUSE in a partition on a separate hard disk, and am receiving grub error 17 on install. My windows partition is sdb1, and my (hopeful) openSUSE partition is sdc2. When I attempt to redefine the grub config after receiving the error message, there are no mounted drives in my "/dev/" folder to point to, nor can I find the kernel image or RAM disk in my "/boot/" folder.
I installed openSUSE on a XP runnng computer and every thing is OK.When I tried to Install a new XP, I got this error:Code:Invalid Partition Table I fixed it by reinstalling GRUB using Rescue System.I tried fix mbr on XP Repair System and I got that error again.Now I want to keep XP and remove openSUSE. But computer only boots by GRUB and XP's boot loader is unable to boot and shows that error
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.
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.
I tried to install openSUSE 11.3 from the Gnome live CD. I have two disks in my system, one with a Windows Vista x64 install, and another with a Vista x86 install which I no longer need and quite a bit of free space. I want to install Linux on it. I switch OS's by switching the boot disk in BIOS, so I don't really need a boot manager, but openSUSE installs GRUB by default, so I used it.
The Vista x86 partition is a primary partition at the start of the disk, and after it there's an extended partition with quite a few logical partitions. At the end of this extended partition I added partitions for swap, / and /home (ext4 all), and a new primary partition at the end for /boot. (I actually created these for a failed Linux Mint install, but I used them and reformatted during the openSUSE install.)
I made the Vista x86 inactive and the /boot partition active, and this works. At least, I get as far as seeing a menu which I guess is GRUB. Before that I get "Error 22: No Such Partition". If I choose openSUSE from the GRUB menu I get:
Booting 'openSUSE 11.3' root (hd1,2) Error 22: No Such Partition
I booted from the live CD again and checked the /boot, / and /home partitions, and they contain data, so they must be formatted fine.
