Re: Replacing Windows 8.1 with Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon

whatever I chose when the gparted error appeared, it would show the space on the hard drive as unallocated so I just created a new partition table as I didn t had one to delete. I finally have Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon installed and running good, no backlight problems or other bugs. Thanks everyone!
