Mint4win fail

Postby Borsook on Mon Aug 03, 2009 7:03 pm

Hi, Mint4Win does not install Mint 7 KDE for me, on the same machine using main edition it works just fine. Just in case I'm attaching the installation logs.

Just a thought
Do you try to have two Mint systems with mint4win at the same time?
There may be some conflict in the Windows startup files if you try that - I just guess, Windows has become something less familiar for me :)
I'll ask around

No, it's the only one... I tried again and MInt 7 installs fine in Mint4win, KDE version displays some error at the begining about disk (which I did not quite get, will try to re-run it to get the exact wording) and then stops...

You need to check the md5sum of the iso.
If it's ok and you have burned it to a dvd, copy the mint4win.exe to the same folder as the iso.
Then eject the cd and run the mint4win.exe.
If there is anything wrong with the iso mint4win will download a new one.
Make sure to select at least 6GB for the size.
Also make sure that windows shutdown correctly or Linux Mint won't be able to mount the partitions.
I have just install Linux mint 7 KDE CE on my pc and it installed fine.

I will try again as soon as the time permits, but the disk message I mentioned was not about DVD but it was from the partitioner. I thought I would be somewhere in the logs that I have posted, that is why I did not write it down, but will do that.
