I'm new to Linux Mint and have the following problem:
I am trying to install Mint 14 (Cinnamon) on an Acer Extensa Lapop, which is allready running Windows 7 Professional. I first wanted to try Mint and therefore used it on my usb-drive. While running Mint in the "Live" mode directly from that USB-drive I clicked in the desktop icon for installing it and chose to still run both systems (windows and mint). I chose the option to install it on an already excisting partition of my harddrive. At the end of the installation process I was asked to reboot the computer, which I did. During reboot I was prompted the information "continuing installation...", as I expected and Mint started as expected. The problem is: it does so each and every time I reboot my pc. All changes I make to my system settings are lost (like installed programms or access information for my wireless lan etc.
I hope someone with more experience can help me with this problem.
