Hi to All,
I am a linux fan and I just got a new machine and thought that I'd like to dual boot mint and vista. My machine is a dell inspiron 1420, the cheapest variant.
I have 3 partitions and 1 unallocated free space (preparation for linux OS). The partitions have the following contents:
p1 : Vista OS (40GB)
p2 : My Important Files (around 80GB)
p3 : Dell Media Direct (2.0 GB)
unallocated : 20GB
My question is can I install Linux Mint and still use Media Direct? Media Direct is a feature of my laptop wherein if I click the media direct button, it loads up a program (Os possibly windows w/ necessary drivers) that allows me to watch videos and listen to music w/o fully loading my windows install.
I've seen some tutorials to dual boot but they all seem to use Linux's grub to select w/c operating system to use. I was wondering if it would 'break' my media direct feature....
