Dual Boot Vista home and Mint 7

Postby kojack on Mon Aug 31, 2009 8:57 pm

Hi,

I have home premium on my system now and would like to dual boot mint on it as well. I looked through the def. guide post and it was for unbuntu. is it all the same?

I have mint on another machine stand alone and it works really good and im enjoying farting around with it. I would like to have it running on my main desktop as well....any suprises?

thanks...

steve

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Just boot the Mint CD, install and profit, just remember to defrag your Windows before changing/creating partitions for Mint. Oh, and remember, BACKUP important files.
