[opensuse] can't boot from usb
Hi
I have 12.1 on a USB stick installed from the DVD. It installed and booted fine during the installation process and I was able to work with the system after installation, configure it etc. On reboot, I get:
Missing operating system

fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sdb: 8010 MB, 8010194944 bytes
247 heads, 62 sectors/track, 1021 cylinders, total 15644912 sectors

/dev/sdb2 * 1525760 15644671 7059456 83 Linux

I can mount it and see the installation fine. /boot looks intact:

# THIS FILE WILL BE PARTIALLY OVERWRITTEN by perl-Bootloader
# For the new kernel it try to figure out old parameters. In case we are not able to recognize it (e.g. change of flavor or strange install order ) it it use as fallback installation parameters from /etc/sysconfig/bootloader
