I just installed Mint 9 Xfce as a dual boot with Windows XP. Mint 9 live works well, the install seemed to go well. When I try to boot into mint 9, I get an error that reads: "error: unexpectedly disconnected from boot status daemon." There is some other text under that I can take a picture of if needed. I tried to boot into "recovery mode" but didn't know what option to choose from so I canceled out of it. Now when I restart, I still get the same error, but I also get a prompt to log in. I can log in but there is no GUI.
I remember reading online (can't find it again) that showed problems with old computers dual booting with large hard drives. This computer is a 10 year old e-Machine. I gave the XP partition 70GB and Mint 9 80GB.
Thanks for you help,
