Transfering .disk mint4win image to HD partition?

Postby el_b » Tue Mar 03, 2009 6:10 pm

Is it possible, to transfer the files inside m4w to a HD partition, and then just boot it? I want to switch my W1nbl0wd Vis7@h to XP, it's alot better, and the performance is fine. I don't want to do the mint install and drivers all over again.
Thanks.

mint4win is one (giant) ISO file so there really are no files - just one, but of course there are "files" inside
Some of the files differ widely from a normal install (mainly menu.lst and fstab)
It seems to be possible - see this topic

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
