I have installed from 32-bit DVD, so that information is not relevant ..
Well, I have not added the statement to the release notes. The Mint makers did.
Yet, my own tests and quite a few reports here in the forum seem to confirm that the Mint makers are right. Installing Mint 13 32-bit using mint4win does not work out of the box.
In case you have found a way of working around the problems which are show stoppers for normal users it would be really helpful if you could be bothered
+ either to tell us how to do what the release notes say can't be done
+ or post a link to the instructions that you used.
