Reboot Fails After 12.1 64Bit Installation?

Hi,

I've been waiting a long time for a great Linux distribution.
(been running Microsoft(R) Windows(R) 7 HP 64Bit for over a year)

I tried openSUSE 12.1 64Bit in VirtualBox and it looks and ran
fantastically. So I burned the DVD, put a new HDD into computer and
installed it. Installation appears to be successful, but when it tries
to reboot after install it does not reboot and the screen shown is
garbled graphic?

Can you be more specific about "it does not reboot"? E.g. do you see the
grub boot manager? If it's a graphics issue, you could try
adding "nomodeset" to the command line when booting.

(if I reset the computer, I get an operating system is not found
error)

That sounds like a hardware issue.
