Would you please try and search the forum - or the net - for posts which mention how to deal with "grub" problems or setting it up?
Grub _is_ the bootloader and it appears to be misconfigured.
If you are not successful then please use a better description for your next post - mentioning booting and grub.

All the best!

windows found but cant login to suse 11.1..plz help

hi i recently seek help for this errors :
[ Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For
the first word, TAB lists possible command
completions. Anywhere else TAB lists the possible
completions of a device/filename. ]


and i finally manage to login to windows with the help of these methods:

Use ‘rootnoverify’ command for setting the correct root device. this command don’t attempt to mount that partition.

Step(1) Set GRUB’s root device to the partition -

grub> rootnoverify (hd0,0)

grub> makeactive

grub> chainloader +1

grub> boot

and i finally manage to acess my windows but there is another problem..
My suse 11.1 cant be loaded in other words, i cant c my bootloader asking me which OS i wanna boot( i.e. Bootloader list) and it straight away login to windows...i want my bootloader to be restored..Plz help me..

The title of your posting is not informative or descriptive, thus not drawing as much sympathetic interest as you would like. Try to edit it to something better.
