I successfully installed Mint 6 from within Vista, thanks to the no-brainer installer. As target I choosed a second harddrive (the first
one is for Vista). The target drive was formatted NTFS - I expected the installer to act like the one from Ubunt asking which drive
should be partitioned or formated in linux format. No I have 15GB of installed Data on the second NTFS Drive. Does that mean, tha
Mint hast installed itself on the NTFS drive? What about the swap partition? During the install process I thought I would see the message,
that an ext-partition would be formatted.
Can anyone explain to me, how the installation worked?
My goal was to let the installer partition the second drive into 3 partitions:
1. for mint in ext-format
2. swap partition
3. the big rest as fat32 exchange partition
To partition the drive should be no problem I hope, but I ask myself if I need to convert the mint partition to ext ..?
