The system requirements are listed as follows:
- Code: Select all
x86 processor (Linux Mint 64-bit requires a 64-bit processor. Linux Mint 32-bit works on both 32-bit and 64-bit processors).
512 MB RAM (1GB recommended for a comfortable usage).
5 GB of disk space
Graphics card capable of 800×600 resolution
CD/DVD drive or USB port
Of course the above is the minimal recommended you'll want more than 5 GB on the disk.
Your problem I don't believe is disk space. but that for some reason Grub was not updated in the MBR.
when you install it tell it to replace mint 9 not install beside it.
Cheers and good luck
