I’ve been scratching my head while researching the many different tutorials out there (my head hurts!) trying to discover the best way to install Mint 15 on/in my Windows 7 OS.
I recently installed it on a USB flash drive using the Universal-USB-Installer (Pendrive) tool from Pendrivelinux.com. I was able to install it on my hard drive as a dual boot from there – so far so good – pretty straightforward.
The only thing I didn’t like - is that it booted from inside Mint rather than from inside Windows. Like this:
What I’m asking about here is the mint4win Wubi based installer. I used the Wubi installer on a copy of Ubuntu I had installed on the same OS and the dual boot looked like this, which is what I want:
I found a video tutorial that showed a slick GUI (mint4win) and the install looked simple and straightforward for Mint 14. The problem is the video was in German and was installing Mint 14 and I don’t know if the Mint 14 solution will work for 15. I haven’t been able to find the installer period (except for Ubuntu) - let alone for Mint 15.
Where can I get a mint4win installer that will work for Mint 15? A complete tutorial would be nice too!
Any suggestions, directions, corrections would be appreciated. Thanks.
