You can invoke the Linux Mint 14 KDE version installer with a parameter to skip boot loader installation. To do so, press Alt+F2 to open the run dialog, or open a terminal, and start the installer with:
- Code: Select all
ubiquity --no-bootloader kde_ui
Alternatively, you can select to install the bootloader to the root partition of your installation instead of to /dev/sda (the MBR of your hard disk). At least, you can on the Cinnamon/MATE/Xfce version of Linux Mint. You will probably have to select to do manual partitioning for that though.
