Re: Unable to boot windows after installing opensuse

Is 'Windows' listed as a boot option on the GRUB boot menu? What happens when you select it?

 

Also, run the following commands (as root (su)) in a console in OpenSUSE, and post the results here;

 

cat /boot/grub/menu.lst

 

fdisk -l

 

*Note, that's a lower case L in the fdisk command

Re: Unable to boot windows after installing opensuse

hello mr srinivasan welcome to the forums

 

i can sujjest you this method since it worked out for me

 

1.insert the windows xp cd first go to the recovery console enter the admin password(pree enter if u have not got any) and type this command:fixmbr

 

this will restore your windowNT bootloader

 

now insert the openSUSE dvd and hit the upgrade option-->may be one or two packages may get installed then you are done windows will be added to grub menu

 

later go to YAST and select windows as the default boot option (remove the time out option there)

hope this helps Smiley Happy
