    openSUSE 12.1 Won't Boot After Upgrade From 11.4


    Hi - After upgrading openSUSE 11.4 to 12.1 I am unable to boot it up. I see the splash screen and then text that states: "during fast boot: FATAL: Module ata_piix not found." FATAL: "Error running install command for ata_piix." "Could not find /dev/disk/by_id/usb-Seagate_FA_GoFlex_Desk_NA0KAMYD-o:0-part 2 to appear:".
    It's installed on an external drive. I'm running Win 7 and numerous Linux distributions on two drives on a Dell Inspiron 530S Desktop computer.
    Here is output of 'fdisk -l':

    Wow...I am yet to update mine to 12.1, but reading your post there made me shiver!! Whats the latest? Did you somehow manage to solve that -- on your own -- ie I do not see any response to your problem.
