Install Linux Mint 7 over 6 but keeping XP

Postby Jojje on Wed May 27, 2009 3:07 pm

Hello!
I currently have XP and Mint 6 on my laptop.
I want to upgrade to Linux Mint 7 keeping XP but not mint 6.
When I in the install process come to the partion-manager I can't see how I should do.
Can I override mint 6 but not XP?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Select the "manual" partition option and configure so the new version installs over your existing partition (will destroy your current Mint data).

Ok. Thanks!
I am not sure how to do that but I'll give it a try.
I have backed up all my data.
