How do I restore the old boot sector in the installed system with "lilo -u /dev/hdb"?
This is what has happened so far....
1) Install SuSE 7.3 using entire 40 Gig Hard Drive
-I get a message at the end of the install stating... "The lilo boot sector has been written to disk. Restore the old boot sector in the installed system with "lilo -u /dev/hdb" and then I have an "ok" button to click.
The install finishes and it says the install was successful and to remove media prior to reboot. I do this.
2)The computer reboots. Then this is the message I get...
"Invalid system disk. Replace the disk, and then press any key."
-At this point, there is no media in the drive bays, nothing but the hard drive with Linux installed on it.
3)I think I might can use the CD-ROM as a boot disk to get into a GUI and figure something out.... since I am a Windows user, I know nothing about the Linux command line. I am successful in getting the a few options on the screen... one of them being -Rescue System- or something like that. The problem is, I don't know what to do when it gives me the command line. Can I "restore the old boot sector" from this command line?
I am really stuck. How do I get my computer to boot into Linux?
All replys welcome.
