Greetings from a Puerto Rican lost in Texas.
If you are happy with Bea, you might want to wait until Bianca is released. I lost Windows again from Grub menu when I installed an upgrade for the kernel. It's really not much of a problem. All it takes is a minute or two editing Grub menu.lst. There seems to be a conflict with Mintdisk. Clem is working on it, and it's being followed on the thread I posted for you.
Linux Mint got me out of a bit of a spot down in Colombia, when I needed a PC and Windows went all wobbly on me; so I'm grateful, and trying to learn it as much as I can.
