I was able to create a new partition and install Mint on my Athlon system, which had Windows Vista installed from the factory. The Mint install left me with the bootup option of loading either either Vista or Mint.
I decided to remove Vista and downgrade to XP which I was able to do. In the course of doing that I reformatted the C: partition.
Now, I can see the Mint partition from XP disk manager but the boot loader is gone so I cannot boot from it. I assume I wiped that when I formatted the C: drive and installed XP.
Can anyway suggest a way to restore the ability to boot Mint?
