After searching posts on google, none of the advice seemed to work or was something I could figure out with my limited knowledge of linux. The story: my brother in law is trying to get me off my Windows dependence, so I decided to dual-boot Linux MINT 7 with Windows XP pro (64 bit).
System specs: AMD phenom 9500 quad core processor, gigabyte motherboard, 2 ATI graphics cards, 8GB of Ram, and 3 hard drives: hd 1 =Win Xp (500gb), HD 2 -Linux MINT (500gb), HD 3 -Storage, (1TB), all drives are Western Digital., there are other specs Im sure, but those are the main ones.
The problem: After installing linux to HD 2 a couple of times (trying to see if a bad install was the problem), I've figured out that something is wrong with the GRUB. The GRUB loads, (at first nothing would load or boot), and when i go to select either MINT or XP I get an error. With MINT the error is 17, with XP the error is 13. I've tried some fixes listed in posts, but no dice so far. Any help or comments would be appreciated. Iam currently using a Super GRUB disk to boot into each OS, as it is the only way I've found to get into them. (besides the MINT live CD). Please dumb down any help barney style, I can open a terminal, but my knowledge is limited after that to typing in something that someone else writes directly, if that makes sense.
I thought that putting the OS on 2 seperate drives would eliminate these problems...Thanks in advance
