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?

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 Installation :: Install Side-by-Side Hiccup?

Aug 10, 2010

Just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my home laptop after testing it (and loving it) on my work desktop just this morning. First time Ubuntu user and looking to be a long one, too.Anyways, I used the "install side-by-side" on both machines, but my laptop, with Vista, has a weird side effect. At the boot screen, I chose Windows Vista and it booted the recovery tool (I forgot the exact name). I was worried at first, but when I chose the actual Windows Recovery option below it to attempt to fix it, it booted Vista. So it seems in the process of partitioning the HDD for Ubuntu I somehow switched what each partition boots. Is there a way to correct this?

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
Checking for binary /mnt/bin/ls... Passed
Trying to chroot... Failed

This is worth reporting a bug at url.

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Make X11 Screens Be Side-by-side

Jul 20, 2010

It used to be a sysadmin/yast setting wherein you configured the display.It is now done under "personal settings"-->"display" meaning ordinary users can set their own preferences. That's really nice and all, but I'd rather it be sysadmin-only than have to go through several minutes of futzing around with it every blasted time I login. So, how can I make side-by-side permanent either for myself or for all the people who use my system (just me)? Thank you.

This module is only for configuring systems with a single desktop spread across multiple monitors. You do not appear to have this configuration.Since I obviously do and since I can get the desktops to spread across the monitors (after futzing for several minutes).

OpenSUSE Install :: Multiboot Opensuse And Windows 7 With Windows Bootloader?

Jun 8, 2011

I installed opensuse in my laptop in which I already installed opensuse.Now the grub shows first, on boot up. I want to set windows bootloader in front. In order to do that, I did the following,

1. unmount all devices "umount /windows/*"
2. my hard disk partition:- see the link cfdisk /dev/sda | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
3. mount the C drive (where win 7 is installed)
"ntfs-3g /dev/sda3 /mnt/windows -o force "
4. dd if=/dev/sda8 of=/mnt/windows/suse.bin bs=512 count=1
5. kwrite /mnt/windows/boot.ini and write the following,

[boot loader]
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)c: suse.bin
[operating systems]
c: suse.bin="openSUSE"

6. change the boot to sda3 using "sudo /sbin/cfdisk /dev/sda"

Problem is,

now windows bootloader shows when boot up, showing two options,

windows option works normally; but openSUSE option doesn't work.

When it was upgrading the system, by using: It had problems with a couple of rpms (one oppenofice extras and the other i cant remember). I went away for a moment and when i returned the computer was blocked. I whaited to no avail. I pushed the power button and turned of the PC.

I booted but did not started X windows, worse still my /home/ directory is empty!

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 Installation :: Cannot Multiboot .04 From Windows XP Bootloader

Jun 1, 2010

I am trying to install Ubuntu10.04 on my machine which already has on it, Win XP. Lemme lay down the setup of my machine first of all.

I got a new 320GB HDD of which I have taken 20GB as the primary partition and installed Win XP on it. Took another 220GB as an extended partition for my data storage. Around 63GB was remaining which I left it as unallocated. Decided to try Ubuntu, but preferred to boot it from the windows bootloader. Downloaded and burned the Ubuntu-10.04-desktop-amd64.iso(have a AMD x3 425 machine) and tried an install on 30GB of the 63 left.

I did not try any partition scheme. I chose the manual partition option, made a 28GB ext4 partition, made it primary, mounted the /, took another 2GB for the swap and proceeded. Chose advanced option and installed grub on the 28GB(/dev/sda6) and completed the installation.

Since no grub was installed, Ubuntu was not available. So then, used the bootpart utility to point grub to the windows bootloader, but it did not work, was giving me error when I chose Ubuntu from the bootmenu modified by the bootpart.

So tried booting with the same install cd, chose Live Ubuntu this time and mounted the 28GB, copied the first 512bytes using dd if=/dev/sda6 of=ubuntu bs=512 count=1 to a usb drive. Rebooted into windows and copied the file to C: and added it to the boot.ini. Rebooted and tried choosing Ubuntu from the boot menu but it does not work. I get a blank screen with the cursor blinking.

The machine is new and BIOS is LBA enabled by auto.
