Which drive is which???

Postby KoreMike » Fri Feb 15, 2013 3:07 pm

At the partition stage of installing Mint to Dual Boot, the install wizard presents you with 2 boxes to expand/shrink in order to set how much of your drive goes to Windows and how much to Mint.

But which box is Windows and which is Mint?

Some may say I should research partitioning and work it out myself, but either you want to make Mint accessible and WYSIWYG or you don't!

Left hand side of the bar is your current partition, i.e. Windows. Right hand side is the new partition, i.e. for Linux Mint.

Thanks Xenopeek.

I hope my post didn't come across as too 'smartass' in it's tone!

I thought it was something worth pointing out, as I think it is details like this that can make a massive difference to the success of your projects.

I would like to humbly suggest that in future versions of Mint, the install Wizard should clearly label the partitions.
