Next time try using LABEL= syntax in fstab and grub menu configfile. I
can't recall experiencing this problem using them with openSUSE (only
with Grub Legacy), unlike in Fedora (where I use openSUSE's Grub
Legacy). If you read https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=979269
you might spot something useful re openSUSE cloning.

I recently had to move to a new disk as the old one was starting to fail and some system programs were starting to give errors. You need to boot with the install DVD and using:

1. Boot to rescue mode
(mount your partitions)
2. mount /dev/sda1 /mnt (suppose /dev/sda1 is your / partition)
3. mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev
4. mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys
5. mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc
6. chroot /mnt

use zypper (or YaST) to reinstall the kernel.

Once you are able to boot the system check the log files for any other problem packages that may need to be reinstalled. HTH
