Dual booting

Post by Natey214 » Thu May 27, 2010 9:13 pm

I have recently installed windows XP on my computer, now I'm stuck on windows and can't get back to Linux mint!
How can I make it so that I can choose which to load when I start my computer?

You need to put grub back in your MBR.
Basicly boot with your mint cd, open a terninal, mount your / partition and install grub to the MBR.
see this post on how to fix.
