I've tried to install via DVD and USB stick. Each time I removed the media and changed my boot order back to HDD before rebooting.
In any case I've done a full install alongside Win 7 now so it's no longer a problem for me.

There are 7 guests viewing this topic, I'd say that's a good indication of how widespread this is.
The whole purpose of mint4win is an easy install/uninstall within Windows without having to mess with this kind of stuff. What if a person's partitions are different? An install like this could easily cause people unfamiliar with Linux (the target audience of this tool) to do some bad things to the data on their hard drive.
This should be a large priority bug and I assume just a config file or something within Mint that wasn't changed over to work with the new release.

then dowload and use http://www.piriform.com/defraggler , start by checking the hds and then defrag them .
after that retry the windows install of mint . may be you only forgot to set size ... i have 30 Go as a max , good size for linux and update
