New Linux user here. Just tried installing Linux Mint 14 on a dual boot with Win7, but this crashed midway.
(Silly fellow that I am, I neglected to take a screenshot of the error - but it occured as I was trying to change the allocation of space for the OS on the hard drive, which I probably shouldn't have been bothering with)
Anyway, when I ran the installer again, the top option ("dual boot with Windows 7" or such) had gone. I am left now just with the option of replacing Windows 7 - which I do not wish to do - or tinkering with the partitions - which I don't really don't know how to do.
I'd like to get that option back. Anyone got any ideas?
