When I did it before (with Ubuntu) it was automatic, no problems at all.
Now, I have XP on one eighty gig HDD, a back-up one twenty gig HDD and a spare eighty gig (since my damn RAID controller died ) and am wanting to install Mint on the second 80 gig. I boot into the live CD, install from there, go to "advanced" and "boot loader" (or something to that nature) is already clicked, so it should boot right?
I install and reboot, and it just goes into Windows with no hesitation. I disconnect the eighty gig HDD that has Windows on it and try to boot and it tells me "Operating System Failed to Load" (or something similar)
Anything I find on the net tells to fix it using a FDD, and I don't have one anymore, it disappeared when I moved recently. It's not a problem to get one, but it can't be this damn difficult to dual boot can it?
