Re: Installed an app to show Windows

Ok then we'll give it a try. I'll rename hal to hal-2 also. Be back in a sec I hope.
Thanks

Re: Installed an app to show Windows

Firefox is causing the terminal to echo that? Maybe I should wait and rename it back? What if I rename /fdi to /fdi-2 and leave hal alone.
Thanks again. :)

Re: Installed an app to show Windows

I just saw this in the terminal after I renamed it.

Re: Installed an app to show Windows

I guess I don't know what you are talking about with Mate. I'm running Cinnamon 17. So if I delete hal, it would be ok, or just /fdi/policy.
Thanks

Re: Installed an app to show Windows

Yes on the location. Is there anything else that uses /etc/hal/fdi/policy? The fdi part of hal.
Thanks

Re: Installed an app to show Windows

That did it, but now up in the left corner it shows. I think it's here with
sudo mkdir -p /etc/hal/fdi/policy
How do I get rid of the directory it's reading?

Re: Installed an app to show Windows

I can do it that way, but when I restart, it shows again. Not that big of a deal, but I was hoping that I could completely get rid of the icon. It works great with one drive, but not, so with two. Mint 17 by the way.
Thanks

{SOLVED} Installed an app to show Windows

I installed an app to show the Windows drive of my setup. Something went wrong and it's only showing the System Reserve of the windows. I have used this for a couple of years now with no problem, but only with one drive. I have two drives and it doesn't work and it here's the script: Auto Mount Wind...

Re: Two HDDs and two OSs

YeeHaw :lol: as they say here in the west. With your patience and thinking outside of the box (me). I'm looking at Mint and Win7 in the bootloader and both are coming up just as you said! This needs to be a pinned post. So far the clearest tutorial I have seen! This is great... I know there are a lo...

Derek_S wrote:Hello WesternSlope - You made the right choice, use "Something Else". If you chose to "Install alongside Windows 7", you would be installing Mint alongside Windows on dev/sda instead of on dev/sdb.
I'll have to remember that when there is only one HDD.

Re: Two HDDs and two OSs

I know you say "Something else", but this is the first time I have seen Install Mint alongside Windows 7. I'm either do it right, or wrong. I'll stick with "Something else" :wink:

Alright. :) Now this old guy can understand what you are saying. /dev/sdb it is.

Re: Two HDDs and two OSs

This is what I mean. I really get messed up here. Right now I have Gparted up and looking at /dev/sda which is the Win7 drive. So you want me to add the ms-DOS MBR to it, or ms-DOS MBR to /dev/sdb?
Sorry

Re: Two HDDs and two OSs

Yes on the ms DOS. One more thing I was confused on what partition do I want the boot partition? /boot, or /home?
On my way and thanks again.

Re: Two HDDs and two OSs

Step 5. Once you are sure you have the correct device, go to the top of the panel and click "Device", then click "Create Partition Table". I put the DOS partition in and saw nothing, but then you said all I'd see is unallocated, so I figured it was going ok. I have a problem here. Do I create an Ext...
