Do you know how to do this using the rescue menu?

If you want to use the rescue system, and know yous partitions are ok
and only the boot sector is wrong, use only the expert options, else
you will have to wait an hour or so, the rescue system insisting to
fsk all the partitions (in any of the two other modes).

you have to recreate the boot system - you have only a basic system.
boot your openSUSE normally and then, in YaST, boot loader, ask YaST
to make a new guessed boot system. on 11.1, at least, YaST guesses
very well and find all the installed OS in the system (I have used
this with vista ans 11.0 out of the 11.1)

else (manually), chrooting in your linux and aking grub-install
/dev/yourdisk should work
