problems after installing suse 10.2 32bit


After installing suse 10.2 its says the partitioning on disk /dev/hda is not readable by the partitioning tool parted, which is used to change the partition table

It wont allow me to boot into suse and only allow a new install, i haven't changed any thing suse has done it all, i have installed the 32bit after the 64 bit coz of lack of drivers. the 64 bit worked fine any ideas of how to cure this problem coz im totally lost now

hi,
did u take any backup before using parted, that is much important before touching partition table.
during installation , do u let the installer to auto partition or done it manually?
if get u to new installation, do u see there all the partition u have?
When u boot, what error does it fetch?

regards,
Nirmal Tom.

hi,
In the following link u shall find the three sorts of grub error messages

http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/man...roubleshooting

As u see on the above link, where u get strucked.
If nothing happens, the grub may be installed on the other hard disk,Check out that.
Try reinstalling grub using rescue mode and do post the error u got or tell us what happens like screen goes blank etc.

regards,
Nirmal Tom.
