After following the installation instructions (or so I thought), my system only boots to Mint and I cannot get to Windows (some might see this as a plus, but since my current printer only works with Windows and the rest of the famly is skeptical of changing over, I need WIndows access for a while). I am looking for a way to reconfigure the system so that I get an option on restart/power on to boot to either WIndows XP or Mint, and to do this with a minimum of manual coding/config file editing, if at all possible. I did search for how to create a dual boot system, but admit that the techie stuff was going over this poor newbie's head just a bit. I read about EasyBCD, but since it runs in Windows and I can't get there, that does not appear to be a viable option at the moment. If that is the best way, perhaps guide me to how I can boot to WIndows? Other ideas welcome too of course. Would appreciate any kind soul helping out.
