Grub problem - cannot boot Suse 10.0
Hi -

I have a dual boot system with SuSE 10.0 and WinXP Pro. Everything was fine until the other day, when GRUB stopped working. Instead of the GUI interface that allows me to select which OS to boot into, I now get the blue non-gui selection screen, which flashes up for about half a second before going into Windows, which is my default.

Does anyone know how I can repair GRUB please? How do I use the rescue option on the install DVD?

you'll be glad to know that with the suse dvd re-installing grub is really simple.

1) insert dvd and boot into it
2) at the boot menu select INSTALLATION, NOT rescue
3) when it gives you the choice between new install and update choose "other" and "fix installation"
4) go to expert and click on "reinstall bootloader"

Yes that's fixed it. Thanks pengu, I'll be naming my first-born in your honour!
