Re: Gparted keeps wanting to move Lm17 install Plz help.

@wayne128, Thanks for the info. Bookmarked your post in case I need for future reference. Had read here and there that people somehow manage to wipe out their Linux installs when installing Windows second. From brief look at your links it looks like they probably did something wrong. Seems that Win...

the above link explains about logs. /var/log/messages should tell you of any errors
Okay so /var/log/messages tells all the errors while everything else is of more specific info right? Alright i will post the /var/log/messages soon.

Re: Gparted keeps wanting to move Lm17 install Plz help.

Yes, you should install Windows first, then Linux. Windows is good at detecting other versions of Windows that are already installed on the hard drive, but is oblivious to Linux. It will assume it is the only operating system and overwrite the MBR portion of the drive, making Linux unbootable. On t...

Re: Gparted keeps wanting to move Lm17 install Plz help.

Hello Incentive I.C. - That looks good to me. You have observed the two cardinal rules of dual booting: Install Windows first, and install Windows to a primary partition (so that it will boot). Linux doesn't care whether it's on a primary or logical partition, it will boot regardless. And to clear ...

Re: swap - deleted ALL data IN DRIVE

Sweet Jesus - this is one NASTY default option! I just inadvertantly lost three BIG partitions full of things that actually matter because I assumed that Mint 17 would just install over the PARTITION containing Mint 16. I honestly did not know or even suspect that it would delete all other partitio...

Re: Gparted keeps wanting to move Lm17 install Plz help.

Okay i was not aware that you have to have a primary partiton. This is not a problem because as you said i want to make mint 17 bigger but not take up the whole drive. I going to make Mint 17 the desiered size then make a Swap and whats left i will be putting windows 7 on. Which will take a primary ...

Don't know exactly what is going wrong, but have a look at tutorial for GParted here: http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/gparted.html . Maybe you'll see a step you missed. If you can't find answer in tutorial, post back with a GParted screenshot of drive as it exists right now. Maybe that will give...
