Remastersys with Mint 13 MATE: No dual OS installation optio

Post by vimal0212 »

I installed Remastersys 3 in Mint 13 MATE desktop and build a backup ISO.
When I try to install ISO in pc loaded WIndows XP, during installation it does not displays option for dual boot in partition section.
Only two option available, mode for erase full and manual partition.
Live DVD in installation mode does not display option for install along with other OS.

Whats the real problem?

I'm not entirely sure but can't you use manual partition and just make a new partition for the custom install of the OS then install it in the new partition?

I usually will just use gparted and repartition the Windows XP partition then there would be a free 10-12GB space with ext4 format and 1GB or so of swap partition.
