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 and 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.
