I got my Linux Mint LiveCD then realised it was v6 without ext4 support!
Help was at hand though from a newer version of Puppy!
I created my bootable USB stick using Unetbootin http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
However, the version of Puppy Linux in the drop down doesn't include ext4 support.
BUT you can download the 5.x series iso (~110MB) which does
have support and point Unetbootin at that. http://www.puppylinux.org/downloads
Then after booting into Puppy I was able to mount the ext4 partition and do the old restore GRUB trick
- Code: Select all
And get back to Mint to post this
I might keep the Puppy USB stick for a while too as it was fun to play with (even though some of the apps aren't as pretty)
