The Mint worked; however, the multiboot grub loader it created did not. Only the first of the three Windows installations it listed (the WinXP) worked. The other two came up with a black screen saying to insert the Windows disk and do a repair. I'm wondering if such a repair will knock out everything else, including and, perhaps especially, the Linux Mint Grub boot menu which does have the XP on it. Actually my Win7 disk doesn't seem to offer a repair option as such, just an install option in which the present windows 7 installation is copied to a windows.old folder but the files inside it are supposed to be still retrievable from there from the new installation. Any advice on where to go from here to get a 4-way boot menu would be much appreciated.
