Failed to boot from hard drive
 
Well, I've installed Suse 9.3 about 12 times now (not for this problem, but others), now I installed it on my primary drive, and everything seemed okay, it finished loading up everything, rebooted and I chose "Load from Hard drive", after a couple seconds up popped a windows "Failed to load from Hard drive".
Where in the world do I even start to look for the problem, every other time I've installed or reinstalled i'ts worked perfectly except the last 2 or so times.

Thanks if you can help,
Adam

Do you have a resucue disk as part of the distro? Most distro's rescue disk will load the filesystem, provide basic tools, and switch to the hard drive system.

This will allow you to re-install the boot segments.

I'll have to check, the suse 9.3 comes with 2 DVD's and 3 or 4 CD's.
Right now Im reformating my C drive, and then going to try to reinstall suse 9.3 again.

Okay, I unplugged one my hard drives and reinstalled Suse 9.3 and it went just fine, thats fine with me, now I just have to reconfigure my hard drives to put the original one as the second one, but I wonder what happened.
