Re: What are the steps to install to a partition already cre

No offense, but took me 20mins on google, a couple of examples and badaboom had LM10 installed shortly there after w XP. One of probably 30 dual/tri/quad boots done since. LM's installer isn't rocket science ... Jmo, think it's almost self explanatory. Certainly for someone who's done it a few times...

Re: Grub installed on wrong partition. HELP!

The only problem is that the Grub install appears to be pointing at the wrong partition. Ya seem to be missing the jest of the OP's problem here. Willing to bet at this pt, bootin Linux is his absolute last concern, lol. That can always be done later and no doubt easily. His issue is that he borked...

Re: mint seems to have taken over - can not enter PC BIOS

Lil bit confused ... You want into your PC's bios though ? Diff hardware makers have diff ways to do it. Often one of the F1-12 keys. Think some do the Esc key too. On mine to reach bio's I start tapping the F2 key when booting up( right after turning the comp on). Would google whatever model PC you...

^Agrees with Roken again. What he said + some of my patent pending babblings.

Re: Sadly, I've moved away from Mint

Had an afterthought ... about the point made about trying to please everyone. Think there's definitely something to that.

Could check out Slitaz. Though, have to admit to only skimming the OP.
