How to install Mint over Mint

Postby trot2millah on Tue Apr 28, 2009 3:22 am

I currently am running Linux Mint x64 edition, but would like to switch to the Main edition. If I have a dual-boot with Windows XP set up, and a manual partitioning set up, how would I install the Main edition over what I currently have?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Just select the partition where you currently have the old version of Mint installed. Do the "edit" partition and identify it as "/". Make sure you check the format check box. Make other changes that you want as far as partitions mounted at bootup while in the manual partition section of the install.
