I want to install Mint 14 Cinnamon 64 bit on the above Laptop. To cut a long story short I discovered that the boot order choice in the bios is not what I expected.
You choose between booting from the HDD OR from the DVD drive. Weird.
Thinking about it, it would appear that I have to change the bios to DVD boot, install Mint, then change the boot back to HDD so that Win 7 Pro will fire up if GRUB has told it to.
I think Grub comes after the bios.
Is my thinking correct or what??
EDIT The motherboard has UEFI. It was on but I turned it off. Win 7 still boots OK.
