SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 (sled11)
Support Pack 1 (sp1) may be installed.
linux:~ # grub
GNU GRUB version 0.97 (640K lower / 3072K upper memory)
[ Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB
lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists the possible
completions of a device/filename. ]
grub> find /boot/grub/stage1
grub> root (hd0,0)
Filesystem type is reiserfs, partition type 0xfd
grub> setup (hd0)
Checking if "/boot/grub/stage1" exists... yes
Checking if "/boot/grub/stage2" exists... yes
Checking if "/boot/grub/reiserfs_stage1_5" exists... yes
Running "embed /boot/grub/reiserfs_stage1_5 (hd0)"... 18 sectors are embedded.
Running "install /boot/grub/stage1 (hd0) (hd0)1+18 p (hd0,0)/boot/grub/stage2 /boot/
In this example the root partition is (hd0,0) as returned by the "find /boot/grub/stage1" command. Use the correct root partition for your system as indicated by this command for the two commands that follow the first one.
Reboot the system and GRUB should come up appropriately.
