Questions about Grub, UEFI,the liveCD and the installer
Before you post please read this
I was very impressed by the features and decided to Install a fresh copy of linux mint 14(cinnamon -64 bit). To do so I downloaded the torrent for .iso(linuxmint-cinnamon-64-bit). I have Windows 7 ultimate(32-bit) as the host OS and Installed linux mint 14 with the "Install inside windows" option. It after few seconds it prompted me to reboot and i did. It was installed(I updated the software and and changed few settings) and everything was fine until I rebooted again. When I Rebooted my PC, a fresh copy of linux mint 14 was installed again. I am not sure what is the cause. Is it because my host OS is 32-bit and mint14 is 64bit?? please help me!!
(PS: I have a 64 bit- intel core2 duo processor)

You need to complete the installation, see the link for that on the desktop once you boot into Linux Mint.

Its not realy installed - only installed the live cd. You need to run the installer on the desktop again to actually give you a installed version. - it doesn't make this clear at all, lots of people get caught out.
