Laptop battery died during installation. Dual boot.

Postby blackplague1347 on Tue Oct 19, 2010 10:51 pm

Hello everyone. I'm trying to install UberStudent alongside Mint and like an idiot, while I was installing UberStudent, I left my laptop unplugged. A little under 50% of the way through the process, my laptop died.

What can I do to fix this problem? I rebooted with the UberStudent Live CD and started the install process again, but apparently it had already created a partition on my disk, so now there's a big chunk of my hard drive with a semi-installed OS on it.

Should I:
A) Re-install Mint, using the entire partition
B) Use GParted to delete my UberStudent partition and give it all to Mint again
C) Other

Keep in mind that I don't really know how to use GParted, as I've never done it before. I'm assuming I can delete the UberStudent partition, reboot with the Live CD, then tell it to use the unoccupied space when I re-install?

I'm quite noob, so take it easy on me >_>

*puts up flame shield just in case*

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You assume correctly.

Oh. Well, simple enough then, I suppose.

I guess I'll give a shot and if it doesn't work, I'll undoubtedly be back. Thanks!
