    I suggest you try installing grub to the root partition of openSUSE and try setting up dual boot with Windows bootloader example here ... Supergrub can be used to restore code to MBR for either Windows or Linux boot.

    If Windows will boot up and shutdown the PC correctly once you restore the Windows bootloader code then you will have the answer ... and if it does not then the issue is not grub

    I'll try to look at the drive and maybe change the boot location. I'm new at Linux, so it may take me a while to figure it out. I thought it booted with GRUB in the MBR.

    Grub will be in the MBR at present, restore Windows bootloader code to the MBR will put Windows boot back to how it was. If you still have the problem then the issue is not Grub. SuperGrub makes it easy to set system to boot from either Windows bootloader or Grub.

    Well, when I rebooted with XP, it went through and repaired some files with chkdsk. Everything seems to be working ok now.
