[opensuse] Suse 12.2 and Windows 7 (again) won't dual boot HP laptop
I've just spent an enormous time, again, trying to get my HP laptop to dual boot. I have created partitions. I "fixed" Windows after using gparted to create the partition spaces so that it boots. I used the Windows partition format and sizing tool to create partitions that the Suse install could see and use. The Suse install appeared to run fine, except a bunch of errors at the end that all seemed to be erroneous and ignorable (like "modprobe hid_generic not found").

Then, of course the laptop won't reboot, but there is where all of the "help" sites I found online go in different directions. Of course, the Windows "fix" disk I created gets Windows running again, but absolutely nothing I try, like running "boot_fix" works. I can't really make boot_fix work because I can't get it connected to the internet. I've looked at a lot of searches and this seems to be a pretty common problem, that some "gifted" people get through, and leaves everyone else thinking there is no help out there.

I've been through the Suse archives.

I would think there should be some sort of document somewhere that adequately addresses this problem, it's been around since the early 11.x releases.

Any help?

Thanks,

Jim
