How do I install without installing the GRUB bootloader?

Postby lsayre on Sat Dec 23, 2006 11:14 am

The title basically says it all. I want to install Linux Mint 2.1 BEA, but I can't figure out how to install it without also installing a bootloader which overwrites my MBR. Running Linux on 3 partitions, I already have GRUB, and I do not want it replaced by the version provided in Linux Mint.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

In the installation summary you just click (hd0) and replace it with /dev/hda2 or whatever partition is your target.
