Windows Vista Not Booting!

Windows Vista Not Booting!

So I installed openSUSE yesterday on a new partition. However, this morning, when I tried to boot up Windows Vista, it went directly to the recovery menu. I did a System Repair, and a System Restore, but it still booted up to the recovery menu. Then, I inserted the openSUSE LiveCD and deleted the openSUSE partition. But now when I try to boot up the computer, it says:

Boot off the openSUSE disk or another Linux LiveCD and run "fdisk -l /dev/sdc" (or whatever the real device is) and then post the results here. I suspect you just need to mark the Windows partition as bootable.

Have you attempted to boot from your Vista installation disc? The recovery tools on it are pretty powerful, and the majority of the time it is capable of detecting and fixing boot issues all on its own.
