Double Dual boot system to Single Dual Boot?

I installed Mint 14 on a Windows XP / Ubuntu dual booted system, expecting it to replace the ubuntu system. However, I now have to go throught two menus to get to Mint. The first offers me the generic Ubuntu with another 5 options ending with Windows. I then select this option and am passed to anoth...

I'm 70, and white on pale green does not work for me. I changed the theme, so its not a problem any more

Re: Will Mint Install over another Ubuntu version

Correction - I made a silly mistake. While Mint did install on my system from the memory stick and created a small (under 2 meg) partition on my drive, it was not the full install that I thought it was. After writing the last post above, I noticed a button that said Install Mint. I had previously th...

Re: Will Mint Install over another Ubuntu version

I'm not sure, but is it possible you are running LiveCD from memory stick? The LiveCD IS the OS. It just runs in the memory (using the optical disk or whatever) as the "Frozen" disk. Nothing is installed on the HD. Any settings you make will be lost when you shut down the system. I just d...

I remember that replacing dual booted linux is not that simple. Linux typically doesn't suggest overwriting another linux distro, If that's the situation, I suggest reformatting the partition with Mint LiveCD. Does not Mint LiveCD require a linux OS? My linux OS has no internet access. Am I better ...

Will Mint Install over another Ubuntu version

I had a version of Ubuntu installed and working on my laptop which is a windows XP machine, and it dual booted to Ubuntu. All worked fine complete with Intenet access. I then got an automatic update to a version of Ubuntu (think it was 12) that had what looked like a yellow chamelion on the front pa...
