Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

thank's for the links, but with those solution LinuxMint5 work but without the network :-( and Windows don't work anymore, but i need Windows for some games.

Intrepid alpha6 work but not 100%, i hope the final Intrepid and after Mint6 will work again. So for the moment i use Mint only on my Laptop, and on a VirtualBox from windows.

Hey,

How did you get Windows and Linux to boot on the same board?

I have vista installed now and want to put Mint on another hard drive...

Thanks in advance,

A

you only have only to enable the AHCI in the Bios from the board, and than install Vista, with the SATA driver from the mainboard-Driver-CD.

After you can install Elyssa without problem, you only need to install the linux network drivers to access the internet.

but i only access Vista for games (it is so bad to pay 100euro for a system, i use only for games)
