OpenSuse 10.3 CD and DVD with fault installer? Reinstalling the bootloader!

Today I tested the new OpenSuse 10.3 with KDE both in CD and DVD version on an old Packard Bell Desk Pro. After a long wait during installation, at automatic reboot it will be prompt a classic black screen with the message “Operative System not present”. After a vanished search on the net looking for some informations, I thought that the installer was failed to install the bootloader and so I have just tried to do it manually. Here there are all the steps I follow:

grub> root (hd0,1)
grub> setup (hd0)
grub> quit


Restart the system and magically the installation will go on.
