I upgraded my ubuntu and that resulted in its grub loader being used. I have a triboot of windows, ubuntu and suse. I prefer the suse bootloader which I was using before the ubuntu updates. I would like to restore the suse boot loader from yast. How do i do it?
The generic procedure to restore Grub is
- Boot into something Linux (either live CD or on disk, but must have Grub commands available) -- I don't know about other *nix
- Mount the partition that holds the OS with Grub to be fixed, be sure to mount the separated boot partition if you have it
- Issue the following command, remember to replace
/dev/sdawith your mount point and device
grub-setup -d /mnt/suse /dev/sda
Alternatively, after step 2, you can
/mnt/suse and from there execute
I find the Ubuntu help page very informative at this.
You'll want to boot into SuSE, and run (as root)
grub-install /dev/sda (replace /dev/sda with the boot device on your computer. You'll want to update your /boot/grub/menu.lst in SuSE to include an entry for Ubuntu.
