Will Mint Live read windows partitions?

Postby georgeg » Fri May 18, 2007 10:14 am

I ran the latest KDE version of Mint last night in LIVE mode to see what it looked like. Very nice! One thing I noticed was that under file management, I couldn't see the drives I have under windows. Does Mint not see windows partitions or is it just because I was in the LIVE mode.

it's because of live mode... mintDisk does not start while using liveCD... something becase of osprober...
Windows is extremely fast after a fresh install. If you want to make it stay that way: - don't use it.

However disk tools see your disks, so you can use Qparted. Possibly your disks open up when you start qparted, or this is just a new behavior i Cassandra, been some time since I run Bianca gnome live CD
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
