Mmmm, I like me some Mint and keep coming back for more. Nice an' fresh. My thanks to the developers/maintainers
Alright. It's like this: I got two physical disks of which the master (hda, and first in boot order) has XP and the slave (hdb) has Mint. XP was installed first (and I checked the sticky, but it didn't have my situation listed). I installed Mint.
During the installation I chose the following partition scheme:
It installed fine.
During boot it tells me GRUB is loading, but gives the error that it can't find message.elyssa. Sorry, I don't remember anymore exactly, but it was something like that. After that it loads a more primitive non-graphical boot screen where the normal options are listed. So it DOES boot, but not perfectly.
One more thing I gotta mention is I did install other distros on this disk before which recognized XP on the master. I also remember choosing to install GRUB on the master, and having the master as first in boot order before (and still so). How do I fix it most easily, without breaking my system?
