Afraid to go FORWARD

Postby Narwal on Thu May 20, 2010 10:40 pm

I am booting from the CD and trying to install Mint alongside XP Pro (dual boot). I get as far as the screen which says there is no operating system on the hard drive. Obviously, this is not right. It DOES, however offer a choice to "install side by side" or something to that effect.

What do I need to do to insure that my XP installation is not lost?

Thank you.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

If you aren't experienced with dual-booting or Grub, you might want to try running Mint4Win.exe (It's on the CD) from inside XP.
