dual boot using windows boot loader [SOLVED]

I run Mint 9 live and tried to install. So far so good, but there is an old windows 2000 running on the machine and about 70 GB free disk space left for linux. At the end of HDD partition, I entered the settings and selected boot loader to be installed at the beginning of the root partition (/dev/sd...

Re: Helena and Nokia CS-15

Could anyone tell me how to fix the .deb-package?

dpkg-deb -x extracts the stuff, but how to re-pack it?

Re: Helena and Nokia CS-15

Aha, in the Nokia support discussion forum, someone wrote: The Linux package can not be installed, because the post and pre script have a typo. The right syntax is: udevadm control --reload-rules Dear Nokia, pls edit the "postinst" and "postrm" files and provide a new package asap. Thank you very mu...

Helena and Nokia CS-15

Has anyone managed to install Nokia CS-15 internet stick to Helena? After installing Helena, there were a lot of updates (including the kernel). The .deb-package on the stick was found, but synaptic doesn't seem to like it. Installation ends in error and leaves synaptic into jammed state: E: The pac...

Re: Dual boot vista/mint bootloader?

Oh, you were asking about booting to a CD? That is handled by your motherboard BIOS, so you could do it with no hard drive in the system at all! So, grub on your hard drive won't affect booting a Windows CD nor a Linux Mint Live CD. No. What I mean is that when you buy a new machine with Vista or W...

Re: Dual boot vista/mint bootloader?

In any case, unless you are a guru, or even if you are, start by backing up any data, then back up your mbr, pbr (boot sector), Windows system files, BCD Store, registry, and your /boot directory in Linux. How do you do that? Backup MBR and especially Vista boot stuff? master boot records for windo...

Re: Dual boot vista/mint bootloader?

New BCD? What's that?
Current Mint boot manager is Grub2?
(I understand that curren Mint install uses Grub that can boot Vista)

How about the repairability?
Can you still repair Vista startup if Grub is installed on the MBR?

Kolmeen koneeseen olen pukannut - tyytyväisiä ovat muutkin käyttäjät olleet. yksi meni win2000:n rinnalle toinen Vistan rinnalle ja kolmas itelleni työkoneeseen XP:n rinnalle. Win2000/Mint-kaveri sanoi, ettei ikinä enää siiry takaisin Winkkariin, vaikka pelitarkoituksiin win2000:a vielä käyttääkin. ...

pl2303x USB serial adapter driver

Any idea how to get the pl2303 driver with the pl2303x support in use in Gloria? It seems like Gloria misidentifies pl2303x as pl2303. The two are not compatible and pl2303x data is not received with pl2303-only driver. It looks like Navibe GM720 uses the pl2303x and that's why sirfmon doesn't get a...

Re: Vista and Mint dual boot (partitions)

Thanks.

I just heared somewhere that the new BIOSes don't have the 4 (actual) partition limit any more,
but this BIOS is probably that new.

I guess that's the answer to my questions.

Hi. I'm not a total newbie in the sense that I have installed dual boots before. This time I'm facing a new problem - Windows Vista. The machine is Toshiba Satellite U300 with 2G RAM and a 320G HD and Phoenix Trusted core BIOS. My problem is: Does it support more than 4 partitions (not counting logi...
