Re: Windows doesn't boot after Mint 14 install

My laptop has 2 drives so I think it will be safer to install linux on the separate drive (I store my docs on here), do you agree?

Re: Windows doesn't boot after Mint 14 install

I see, so originally Grub was installed where the windows booter thing was. I will reinstall then. Maybe I should run this first:

Get linux to boot inside another partiton

I created an extension partition and inside this I made a swap partition and a Mint 14 one.

How do I get linux to boot now?
What is the advantage of having these 2 partitions inside the extended one?
