Re: Step By Step Guide On Dual Boot Installation Windows + Mint

This appears to be what is desperately needed to the seriously lacking Mint install guide where the partitioning screen isn't even shown let alone described in any detail. Problem here is, all the images are missing making this of way less value. :( Can the OP update his first post? Thanks, yes I d...

Boot from the usb and u will have access to all your partition linux and or windows to copy back your data. Here is a link which mig...

Nisha, I was struggling with dual booting installation of Isadora over Win7 and was stymed by the partitioning problems and lack of directions in the guide to the point that I was going to give up.

You do know that the Mint User Guide goes over the exact same steps, with screenshots included as well? I don't see how your tutorial is any different, except you've gone into a bit more detail on the manual partitioning stage. That is what makes the difference. A life time windows user mostly give...
