I managed to give myself a Christmas present this year. I wiped my lappy and did a fresh install of Mint 4.0 and it is now a single boot machine! The first reinstall was a disaster mainly due to wireless issues but when I figured out it was better to install the restricted bcm43xx driver everything went well. The second install went flawlessly and I couldn't be happier!
Neither is there in any other: for there is no other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12.
