this will uninstall

Need help ... dual boot Win 7/Linux Mint 13 MATE!

I have to recommend that you skip the dual boot option.

I recommend Virtualbox.

I recommend LM as the host and Win7 as the guest.

Or visa versa.

I believe it much more efficient.

installing/running wine to run a couple of windows programs

My suggestion is this: complete reinstall document all steps you follow and test again to see if you cannot duplicate and isolate the cause of the problem you have descibed if all of a sudden everything works? Great. if you still have problems? try again and if you still have problems? then try to l...

Live CD boots to grey box with blinking cursor?

I suggest you download another Linux Mint desktop and try again.

The reason is to eliminate that it isnt the computer or the desktop.

That is what I would do.

How to check if the installation has terminated correctly?

Chances are everything is probably working fine. Go ahead and take a test drive. I never get to attached to a first time install of a new distro. I always keep the option of a possible reinstall.

Have you ever did an md5sum integrity check on the DVD or CD you use to install?

Do you know how to enter the computer BIOS setup?

First, do you have access to another computer connected to the internet that can download isos and burn them onto CDs or DVDs or a usb flash drive? Second, on the laptop that you want to install Linux, does it already have an OS installed on the internal harddrive? Third, if so what OS is installed ...

I can see why dependencies are a hassle but I give up on the program I am trying to install before I would give up on the distro, not to even mention Linux as a whole. I personally came to Linux cause I got sick of updating the anti virus and purchasing programs to speed up Windows 7. Enough was eno...
