An assumption.
Based on the errors you edited out of your last post that no one can see now. It appears you may have omitted the installation of the boot loader during the SUSE installation, and there's no way of booting it now. You should have installed grub in the SUSE / or /boot partition so the first stage boot loader in the MBR of the first drive can boot it.
