Mint under Windows not OK

Postby guidorossi » Wed Apr 08, 2009 9:01 pm

Hi

I just downloaded the v6 of linux mint and I installed it under my Windows XP.

The problem is that every time I boot under Linux mint it want to start a kind of install, and don't start as normal. It make me first choose my location, then it make me choose the partition to install mint but doesn't appear any partition, so I've got to cancel and there start a kind of normal linux mint.

But that happen every time I boot with linux mint. How can I solve it.

Thanks and sorry for my english.

this is normal behavior when mint4 win is first installed on to your computer it needs to fully install.so let it continue or it will go to a live cd type session which is what you are using.

When you run mint4win it sets everything up.
This way when you 1st start it'll install automatically.
For some reason it's not doing it automatically.
Are you changing to the Live cd mode?
If not maybe the iso you had is corrupt.
Which one are you trying to install? (main, KDE CE, etc)
