Problem with booting in MBR and Grub
I am trying to get my computer running again since Friday afternoon. I even reinstalled the whole system nearly a dozen times during these two days
I was runing SuSE 10.1, then I installed SuSE 10.2 on a different partition and different HD.
Suddenly, I encountered problems with rebooting.
Instead of getting the regular graphical Grub-Menu, it takes ages to print the following lines:
GRUB Loading stage1.5.
Grub loading, please wait......
After waiting for minutes I might get the error message "error 21"
or it goes on after ages (i.e. 10 to 25 minutes ) with the boot process in "slow motion":
Filesystem type is reiserfs, partition type 0x83
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hdb1 vga=0x317 resume=/dev/sda1 splash=silent
[Linux-bzImage, setup=0x1e00, size=0x15c5b4]
I was able to get back into my system with the installation CDs, i.e. both SuSE 10.1 and the new SuSE 10.2. But this is no solution, as the System is not properly running this way, e.g. networking is missing etc.
I used the bootloader menu from yast to check and rewrite the MBR.
It didn't work.
As root I processed
All in vain.
Just in case you need to know:
and menu.lst (in /boot/grub/ in partition /dev/hdb1) contains as default:
title SuSE Linux 10.1
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hdb1 vga=0x317 resume=/dev/sda1 splash=silent \ showopts
I hope that somebody might be able to help me.
