Suse Linux 9.2 / Windows XP
I am a beginner!
I have installed Windows XP on my PC and on the same drive Suse Linux 9.2.
The installation of both was fine. But my problem is now that in the bootloader grub i can choose between:
Linux 9.2 Failsafe
and when i use Windows, a black screen appears and after some seconds i am back in the grubs bootloader.
Linux 9.2 and Linux 9.2 Failsafe works fine!
After first fault i tried it once more! I used fdisk to delete the partitions, and formated the complete drive (27GB -> Fat32). On the clean drive i installed Windows XP. I tried it, and it works fine. Then i installed Linux 9.2 and the problem appears. I search under linux, if a deleted the Windows XP partition! But it is existing! C:\Windows and C:\Program Files exists!
So it think there is only a problem in the bootloader!
Pleas help me!
I have read many posts concerning such problems and i found the info, that the grub in Suse Linux 9.1 has a bug and can be updated via suse help:
But this is 9.1 is this also needed for 9.2 ????
Thanks for your help!
greetings from austria!
Re: Suse Linux 9.2 / Windows XP
I'm not sure what you're asking here. Are you unable to boot into either Windows XP or Linux, or are you having trouble reading your XP data from Linux?
