Brand new to Linux Mint, although I've used some other distro's for a while. VERY impressed with Mint 7! But I do have a problem. I installed Mint 7 as only OS on a spare machine which went great, so great I decided to install it on my home PC which had WinXP and CentOS5 installed in a dual boot setup. I wasn't very thrilled with CentOS as a desktop OS, (love it as a server!), so I was excited to replace it with Mint. The install appeared to go OK and I thought it was just overwriting the CentOS setup. When it was done the PC rebooted fine, the Mint boot loader selection screen came up, XP was listed. I can boot into Mint 7 fine and everything there works fine. I can even browse all of the XP partitions and directories. However, when I select XP from the Mint boot loader, the Windows splash screen appears for a couple of seconds then a Blue Screen O' Death for half a second and the system restarts.
Unfortunately I need XP running for a couple of critical apps, AutoCAD and Revit, as well as a couple of years worth of Quicken data. Any hope for me ?
Any suggestions greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
