Re: trying to dual boot mint 17.3 and windows 7

ok, I got it installed, but I don't have the dual boot option.
It goes straight into mint instead of giving me the option to go mint , or windows.

this is how it looks now in gparted.

Re: trying to dual boot mint 17.3 and windows 7

I tried the "something else" option when it asked about the installation , since it wasn't giving me the dual boot option.

I've shrink the drive , as you suggested, and the free space shows up when I check gparted.
I'm still not getting an option to dual boot when I try to install, though.

how much smaller does a file get when you compress it?

I tried to compress a folder , but it didn't make it any smaller.

I wanted to send a file through email , but couldn't do it. It said the folder could not be scanned for virus , so I had to delete it.
