Re: Re: What is the best Method to uninstall Linux Mint ?

Did you install Mint using mint4win? (ie. while Windows was running) If so, the procedure is a bit different. Assuming you didn't, you could also: -boot into the live DVD -delete the partition you accidentally created -install on the correct partition -boot into Windows -use the Disk Management too...

Re: What is the best Method to uninstall Linux Mint ?

Boot into Win8, delete the Mint partition, expand the Win8 partition to its original size. Boot into the live DVD, install on the other drive. Not sure about any problems you might encounter regarding Win8, but if you've gotten everything working so far I'd feel confident that the rest will work. i...

Re: Linux Mint 15 on Optimus - Bumblebee works NVIDIA/Intel

It worked for me,thank you.
After i rebooted to rEFInd boot manager, I got a second linux icon next to windows, at the end of the bumblebee installation grub was updated.
Did it duplicate another entry, and is there a fix to delete this second icon?

Re: How to install Linux Mint in the (D)or(E) Drive ?

If you want to install Mint to the D or E drive simply boot to Windows 7 and use the Windows 7 partition tool to delete the partition and leave the space raw or unallocated. Then boot to the Mint CD, start the installer and choose the "Largest Available Free Space" option at the partitioning screen...

Re: How to install Linux Mint in the (D)or(E) Drive ?

Im a little confused as to your question, are you saying that you have three hard drives, one with Windows 7 on it and two empty ones, one of which you want to install Mint onto? I personally am not sure how to do this (Im sure someone more knowledgeable will come along and help) but as for the las...
