  1. Where is 'boot to installed system'?

    Where do I find the option to boot to any installed system? I've got a
    mirrored copy of a system that got clobbered by Vista but now I can't find
    that boot option - thought it was in the repair option from the install DVD
    but I can't find it now so I'll ask while I catch a nap.

    you need to reinstall grub (or lilo)
    you are running vista & openSUSE 11.0 system?

    boot up with the install DVD of openSUSE
    choose "repair installed system"
    expert tools --> install new bootloader

    Just to make it clear. The 'Boot an existing installation' feature has
    been removed for whatever reason.

    Vote for the bug if you want it back. I know I do.

    To the OP, you can use an older openSUSE install CD or DVD

    Well, I was running Vista and 11.0 but Vista was one the second drive as
    enumerated by the BIOS after some swaps between SATA and PATA drives so it
    managed to eat the MBR and partition table on the wrong drive. After two
    previous passes at rebuilding the MBR and partition table I'm retiring
    Vista to its rightful place: on a tall shelf.

    Download SuperGrub .iso and burn it to a cd. Boot that and you can boot
    linux or windows. I would boot the installed system and run your grub
    loader.
