Boot problem with Linux Mint 4.0

Postby Elinos » Thu Jan 17, 2008 10:30 am

I have 2 HDDs . First is IDE and the second SATA. I have Windows XP on the SATA. Now i installed Mint on the IDE disk(boot live cd-> install) The installation was fine but now it starts XP direct without asking me to choose OS. What to do to start Linux?

Did you select manually where to put grub?
I guess not
Change boot order in BIOS so the IDE disk is first
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
