Opensuse 12.2 dual boot, boot menu not seeing windows
 
I installed OpenSUSE 12.2 use it for everything but my graphics programs. In order to start window I have to F8 a boot device and pick my drive. Is there a way to get windows on the boot menu? Here is some data on my computer and drives:

It looks like you reversed the drive order in the bios


the windows boot loader is on the second drive
windows really dose not like that

but

in the file /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

there should be a listing for windows


with windows on the second partition of the second drive 'sdb1'

this might have confused things up

edit the line for windows it is likely pointing to the wrong place
