Newb and lovin it

Postby msc34 » Tue Jul 29, 2014 12:09 am

Kinda new to to linux in general friend helped me be able to dual boot mint13 and win7. But the other night i got board and did the mint 17 install and well wiped the whole drive accidentally , but after the intial shock of "losing" windows im glad i screwed up my laptop runs really well!
failing isnt the worst part , its the sudden stop at the end that really makes it a ruff day
