Re-install Mint

Postby gibbs1984 on Tue Nov 18, 2008 4:28 pm

Hi,

I've had a few problems with Mint and I'm looking to just reinstall it over my current Mint (if possible), I dual boot between Vista and Mint, so how easy is it to format my Mint partition and reinstall Mint, is it dangerous or is it straight forward, obviously without ruining my Vista partition.

No need to format the partitions before hand, just put the Mint CD in and start the installer, select the same partitions and it will do it all for you.
