i have used mint 4 with windows xp without any problems.
i decided to install mint 5. i left my windows partition alone (20g) and installed mint 5 with /(10g) and /home(100+g) and swap.
on reboot, i choose windows and it starts to load but i get blue screen real quick and then grub restarts. i choose mint 5 and i get the desktop.
i reboot, again, and go for windows. same thing. i see windows for a split second (blue screen) and then restarts.
i decided to start from scratch. i totally wipe hard drive. i install windows xp. fine.
i reboot to check and i get to windows desktop. great i think. then i pop in mint 5 disk.
i shrink win partition to 20g's with gparted. and then do the install. i see the ntfs partition and i create the root, home and swap partitions.
i do the install. i reboot to grub and i see mint and windows. i choose windows and i still have same problem. mint loads perfectly.
i really would like to have a windows partition (for gaming) but could do without it. does anyone know how to fix this problem so i'll be happy?
thanks for your help.
