Re: Vista and MInt

Quick answer till you get a more permanent one.

Open your BIOS settings when you first boot on your laptop, (one of the F keys normally), go to boot options
And select the other hard drive.
That will get you going until Husse or Clem explains how to do Linux stuff with your MBR

Re: I have ton say I am dissapointed with 4.0

Daryna didn't work for me on 2 points, Printer and External Hard Drive. Now although I did find solutions for these probs, I made a decision to stick with Celena until either a newer version that works comes out, or my knowledge of Linux improves.

Hi Agust.

That theme is great, I love the black colour, I think it works great for Celena and gives it a clean, fresh and different look,

I think in the future it will become a trademark for Mint.

Anyway where can I get your theme?
