I use BING to handle my partitions and multiple Windows boots. The instructions I have from BING for a Linux installation says to be sure and not let grub get installed to the MBR, but directly to the Linux partition.
So going through the Mint KDE install, I get to the part where I can click on the advanced button and get a dialog about installing the boot loader. There's what looks like an editable area for where the boot loader would go (I may have some of this terminology not exactly right, doing it from memory), but hd0 is in there and can't be changed. I'm want the boot loader in the third hard drive, second partition.
I unchecked the box for installing the boot loader, hoping maybe there is another way to install the boot loader. Is there? Or can I do what I'm trying to do with the normal Mint KDE install?
