It really depends on what you want to do. I would probably just start over. Reinstall Windows and shrink it. There are a couple of things you need to know before shrinking so you don't bork the partition: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows- ... -problems/ You can use the partitioner tool in Mint (gparted)Menu>Administration>Partition Editor> to make a swap partition, and a EXT3 partition for Mint. When you install Mint, choose manual partitioning and just tell the partitioner to mount the EXT3 partition you created as "/", or root. Here is some info on manual partitioning: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/partitioning Just be sure to get Windows installed and shrank successfully first :D Good luck.
