dual boot windows 7/mint 13 partition question

Postby gatorade on Tue May 07, 2013 7:34 pm

I'm installing mint 13 beside windows 7 , but I don't know which side is going to be windows when I'm partitioning the drive.
I've got windows installed , and I've inserted the live cd , I hit install , and now I'm about to set the size for the partitions.

I need to know if windows is going to be the left side of the slider , or the right side. I plan on using most of the drive for my linux partition , so I need to know which side is which before I set it. can anyone tell me, will windows be the left, or right side ?

With Windows already installed, Mint should take the right.
Home PC: Xubuntu 14.04 x64, Nvidia GTX650, i7 3770K, 16GB RAM, Asus Xonar DX
Work PC: Mint 13 x64 XFCE, Nvidia GT620, i5 3470, 8GB RAM
Laptop: System76 Kudu Pro, Xubuntu 14.04 x64
