I'm dualbooting Mint 13 and Windows 8. Inaugural boot into Mint, I go into user accounts and create an account for myself (since Mint just went right to desktop), run update manager, install a few programs, change a few things around (wallpaper, etc).
Reboot, and when I log back into Mint, everything's gone. No user account, no programs--even the updates are all evidently gone (according to update manager). I'm at a complete loss on what might cause this. i've played around with Mint before (by no means more than a novice, so "play" seems appropriate), and while I've always encountered bugs, never anything quite like this. The only difference between now and then is Windows 8 vs. Windows 7.
Some Googling bore no fruit, so anyone have any ideas?
