Installing on Windows 7

Postby seth5566 on Sun Jan 25, 2009 7:35 pm

I couldn't get mint to install do to my cd drive over heating but I was determined to get it installed. I used the install under windows program (wubi if it was ubuntu, not sure if its the same name in mint) and all was well untill I rebooted. When it boots there is no boot menu it just goes straight to the windows loader. Apparently this doesn't work with Ubuntu and Windows 7 ether but maybe one of you will know the trick.

Alright I used that guys directions except I didn't really understand his last thing about using an id something or other so I just moved the mbr file I wanted to use to the NFS directory and changed the name to the one that was being used. Worked just fine. I'll have directions up in a minute.
