LINUX MINT14 RE INSTALLING on every reboot

Postby vishwa363@gmail.com on Sun Nov 25, 2012 2:43 am

Hello,
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)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

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.
