I have installed mint 10 on a windows XP home edition from a live CD, so I have Both Windows and Linux mint 10.
It was working perfectly fine, when booted, I would choose which one I wanted. But few days ago it showed a blank page saying failure attempt and (initramfs) and telling me to enter help for a list of codes or threads. Forgive me I have no experience with the linux language.
So this way I cannot get access the linux mint desktop.
