Questions about Grub, UEFI,the liveCD and the installer
I run mint on my laptop and have a redundant usb drive that i want to put xp/vista on.I guess that as soon as I install windows onto usb it'll corrupt grub.
I'd like to keep backup grub or at least have a way to restore it and recognise xp/vista in it so that when my usb drive is connected i can choose to boot into windows and when not boot into mint.
Any ideas please?

Restore grub is easy with Super GRUB disk, though you will have to add a entry for the USB disk. Just Google for Super GRUB disk, it is available from some Yahoo/Geocities url.
