This deletes access to many other distributions on my development system. Worse, the installer program showed me my disk before the formatting and installation of the software, but did not indicate that the grub2-install would point to the very first drive.
I would not mind, but grub2- and os2-prober do not appear to recognize all my installed distributions.

The installation through windows was great, with a smooth and hassle free installation. Having liked 11, I decided to do the same, and install Maya 64- bit version through Windows. From the reading through the forums, I sensed that after Mint is installed, that the full installation needs to be completed via the desktop installation. When I proceeded with the process, I came across the partitioning section. Before, Mint 11 did everything for me. Now, I'm faced with this decision with the partitioning. Hmmm! If I select the hard drive, and install the complete installation, will that erase Windows from the hard drive? I do not want this is happen. I have checked out the user manual. From my observation, I could not any information on the process on full installation of Mint inside Windows. Is there any documentation in going through this full process?

I just remember that an onld laptop with windows 7 and I wanted to downgrade to Win Xp last week. I Xp simply did not install. So Ifound the problem was that win7 did some mess to the partitions and I found a url to boot from a USB flash with a partition software.

Just used that partition software to erase, kill and send to hell that fu#$@ing win 7 partition and voilá...... I got LINUX Mint 64 installed !!!
...and a very good one, I'd said! Being a complete newbie in Linux, I read a lot now and try to draw conclusions. Your post is one of the best, sure!nisha wrote:Some time back I have attempted to make a detailed guide
