bootloader repair/replace problems
Let me start by saying I have always had this same problem with every version of SuSE I have installed, sinc 9.1:
I had to reinstall WinXP, and now my GRUB bootloader is gone, which is to be expected, however:
When I try to repair it, using either the auto OR the custom repair options off of the install disk, I run into fstab entries problems. Right now I am trying to recover the bootloader for SuSE 10.1 x64, WinXP, & WinVista.
I get these issues:
ignore (or remove, neither works) debugfs /sys/kernal/debug no auto
ignore /(or remove, neither works) /dev/sda2 /data2 vfat yadda yadda (it's for my iPod)
When it does:
"Check Package Database"
It tells me that all of the hard drives cannot be mounted.
Can someone tell me how I can repair, or rebuild, or build a new bootloader WITHOUT having to do a fresh install?
Someone told me to "chroot" into into SuSE, but when I do a man chroot command, it doesn't say anything about how to use it really, so I have no idea how to do it.
PLEASE, can someone help me on this? Thanks.
