[Solved]Ambigous partition size divider

Postby Tombe on Thu Sep 20, 2012 2:53 pm

Hey, I'm installing linux mint alongside windows, but I got stuck at this screen:

I can't figure out which side of the slider will be the windows partition and which side mint will be installed on.

Also I feel like this is really clear to everyone, I was wondering what I missed :)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Well by trial and error I've determined that the right one is the one that will get linux on it.

Although this is problem marked as "Solved" I believe that it is still an open issue. I had exactly the same problem installing Mint 13 Maya. There is no indication as to which side of the slider is which. This is a serious bug that is a real put-off for people who would like to migrate from Windows to Linux. First impressions are really important, and to me I found it a real pain that this was not evident from the screen or in the documentation. This really needs to be addressed.

My thoughts,

Peter

Bump as I had the same issue. If I was knew to this, I'd quit right off the bat.

Posting here about a problem that requires changes in the code most likely won't do anything. I recommend you report it as a bug to the developers:
