How to install Mint4Win

Postby wildhawk on Tue Jan 05, 2010 2:59 pm

I really like mint 8, however I dont want to completely give up windows. I have read that Mint4Win does and does not work. I have used WUBI to install Ubuntu but I really dont like ubuntu that much and like Mint so much more.

First: Does it work and if so, where can I find the installer package?

Second: If it does not, do we know when it might work?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

As stated in the release notes, "Because of compatibility issues between wubi/mint4win and grub2, Linux Mint 8 comes without a Windows installer. The development team is working on the issue and new ISOs will be published when it is resolved."
