    Linux does not boot


    I've got win xp in one partition and Suse 9.1 in another, but ever since I installed suse, my win xp does not work. I've tried to config Grub, but it still doesen't work. My linux does not recognize the NTFS partition. How can I make my win xp work again???


    This was one question. Mine is:

    Hi,

    I got the exact problem only reverse. I had Windows XP on it. But it didn't work so I installed Linux Suse 9.1 on the other partition. So now everything was working fine so I installed Windows XP over the one that didn't work. Now Windows is working fine but I can't reache Linux.

    At first there always came a menu when I started my comp up. I could choose between Linux and Windows.

    Now the comp goes straight to Windows.

    How can I reach Linux??

    Thanks for the help.

    Sounds as if Windows has overwritten the MBR with it's own bootloader. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you should reinstall GRUB by booting your computer with the installation CD and entering the Recovery mode.. Install GRUB from there, and everything should be fine.
