Only way I can imagine you pulled this stunt off is that you F'd with your BIOS in between reboots. You boot to Windows with one BIOS config. You renumber your drives to something else, install Mint, and then revert your drive numbering back to original.
If you don't have GRUB on the MBR of the primary drive, you won't boot anything but Windows. Theres your problem. Its #5.
The solution is rather simple. You need to do all of your booting without F'ing with your BIOS or drive numbering. Then and only then will Mint install properly AND write GRUB to the MBR of the correct drive. Mint put GRUB on the MBR of the wrong drive.
