The other problem I'm having is grub 2 can't seem to find Mint even though I know it's there. Should I just try and reinstall Mint leaving Win 7 alone since the bootloader is installed correctly now?
May be you have several hard disk?
Can you boot and run from installed Mint, then, open a terminal, type these commands, and post there results
1. sudo os-prober
2. sudo fdisk -l
3. sudo parted -l
