Re: Two HDDs and two OSs

Agreed with not having to re-install Windows. Using Gparted to create a MS-DOS partition table on dev/sdb sounds a little scary. You say "Do something else" and do a the creating of the MS-DOS partition table with Gparted, before I install? Would the boot partition there, or at the root "/" partitio...

Re: Two HDDs and two OSs

Thanks for coming back first of all. Whoops as usual. Windows 7 is on dev/sda and Mint is on dev/sdb sorry. I do have to keep changing the boot in BOIS and driving me nuts too. Are you saying to install Mint with both drives hooked up? No problem re-installing Mint. It's bare bones right now.
Thanks

Each OS was installed with only it's own drive hooked up. I hate to start with EasyBCD if I don't have to. I installed Win7 as UEFI and Mint as Legacy...

{SOLVED}Wrong way Grub

I've installed another system with Win7 and Mint 17. I messed up as usual and put the bootloader on the wrong partition. Mint comes right up, but Win7 is another story. Win7 is on partition 2. I have it on partition 1. If I can, how do I move the loader to where ever I need to and see both Mint and ...
