When installing a Suse Yast should replace XP's bootloader with Grub. i didn't change its default partitioning and she took less then it actually needs if you install a few extras. The latter is a scratch area about the size twice of PC physical memory. also as a side node what is the hda2 partition.. http://fileupster.com/grub-error/grub-error-25.html

It just works! Thereafter Grub should present you with 4 choices of booting as listed in the menu.lst (each starting with ###, 1st Suse, 2nd Windows, 3rd by floppy and 4th another version of It seems sort of odd that you would get this message at all. I tried the top brand names but still had failures, not as many but enough, now I use floppies sparingly as they are dearer than CDs.

Run the installer, install grub to the MBR, reboot to the hd and edit menu.lst, remove the comment on the timeout and set it to 3.
One suggertion is to chroot into the cloned machine from the original (I'm assuming they're networked together when you cloned it), and try reinstalling grub manually.......

I would say that you should check your first HD for bad sectors (stage 1.5 is written on the first track) or do a fresh install on another HD (as it Boot from CD-ROM Try and mount the partition you think puppy is on.
I do not know if Grub legacy can deal with large disk and/or ext4, or if some misconfiguration is the reason of problem or not. I think you are almost there now. If it cannot find the partition (in red), it might indicate that the partition table or stage 1.5 is messed up (due to logical or physical errors). If the grub installs correctly you are in business.
example: # fsck -f /dev/hda2 Also, if you want to start over you can to it very fast. weblink I thought you had to have a fairly new version of grub to support reiserfs, or had to pass some other options to it. You should also be able to activate the GUI of the Suse in hda3 by typing KDE or startx. Advanced Search
I've tried reformatting the hd, installing dos to its own partition then installing puppy but there's the grub problem. he command is chroot /mnt/hda3 You should be inside the Suse installed in the hda3 now and still retain the privilege as the root user. I suggest you to get hold of a Live CD like Knoppix (one that can be installed without the need to reside in a hard disk), as I am not sure navigate here Linux user started Jun 2004 - No. 361921 Using a Linux live CD to clone XP To install Linux and keep Windows MBR untouched Adding extra Linux & Doing it in
First of all you need to create (or allow Suse installer to create) two partitions for installing a Linux. Grub is the most powerful bootloader for PC. Uh, I just went to read the solution and from what I see I have to have a running version of OpenSuSE to get it to work...

The only way to continue installation was to boot from the first CD and then using the option boot existing system.
