Question I cloned a dual boot drive Windows and SUSE with Acronis ERROR 17


I cloned a dual boot drive Windows and SuSe with Acronis® True Image version 11.0 (build 8,101

Message I get is:
GRUB Loading Stage1.5 GRUB loading, please wait Error 17.

Question - Windows or SuSe of something else.
How do I fix it?

I am relatively new to SuSe
I use dual boot machines but never set one up myself

Cannot mount selected partition
This error is returned if the partition requested exists, but the filesystem type cannot be recognized by GRUB.
Above is Grub error 17. You don't indicate which system you are trying to boot when you get this error but, I will assume it is windows? Your entry is pointing to the wrong partition.

Posting your partition information and contents of /boot/grub/menu.lst would help.

If you still haven't resolved this problem, you could use a Linux Live CD or your Opensue install CD if you have it. Load a Live CD, open a terminal/konsole and run command "fdisk -l" as root user (lower case Lettr L, not a one) and navigate to the /boot/grub/ directory and find the menu.lst file to post. If you don't know how to do this, post again.
