boot and reinstallation problems

Postby bobchatelle » Sat Apr 20, 2013 6:22 pm

I've long been curious about Linux and I downloaded and installed Linux Mint a couple of weeks ago. Everything seemed to work fine.

This morning, however, Linux Mint would not boot. I think the message was something like "Missing MBR Record."

So I booted Window 7 and uninstalled Linux Mint.

I decide to give it another try and attempted to reinstall from the boot disk. I entered the same username/password that I had originally used. I got the error message "passwords don't match."

I tried a different password, different username, etc. But I always got the same error message.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
