can't install grub in 11.0 MBR

03/10/2008 - 06:25 von Joe Z | Report spam
I installed 11.0 on my ThinkPad T60 and it worked fine.
Installed another disrtro and it wiped out 11.0 grub in the
MBR. Now I can't boot 11.0.
Tried to install 11.0 grub in the MBR thus:

"# grub

root (hd0,11)
setup (hd0)
quit


#"

This works with every other distro I ever used except suse.

"grub> root (hd0,11)
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83

grub> setup (hd0)
Checking if "/boot/grub/stage1" exists... no
Checking if "/grub/stage1" exists... no

Error 2: Bad file or directory type

grub>"

stage1 is in /boot/grub

Can I use the SuSE 11 DVD as a rescue system to boot 11.0?

In the old suse installation, there was a choice to boot an installed
system, is that still available?

The best combination is SUSE-DVD plus heavy amount of luck.

Stepping through the "Installation", just after detection of
linux-partitions, you can decide to boot an installed system.

If anything fails, give SuperGrubDisk a chance:

www.supergrubdisk.org

Best known protection against those desasters is to save all versions
of functional menu.lst with speaking names and to use one of them or
a compound of parts of them to reinstall grub.
