Just out of curiosity, I tried installing Mint 14 Xfce using mint4win in Windows 8.
So I allocated it 8GB, and the installation went fine I was able to boot Mint 14.
First question, I gave it 8 GB and the free space is only about 950MB? Is this by design or a bug or just me? I mean I can even get a lot more free space when I do a full install.
And this is really made me remove the whole mint4win experiment. It is not persistent. I tried changing the wallpaper, a few settings and put some test files on the home folder but after a reboot is was like a fresh new install of mint4win. I tried it a few times just to troubleshoot, like rebooting to win8 then to mint or rebooting staight to mint again. I also tried reinstalling again the mint4win but still no luck.
Am I the only with these problems? Are there any solutions?
