Newbie dual boot win 10 and mint

Post by sharpsword » Thu Jun 13, 2019 1:24 pm

[SOLVED]
Ok folks. I am so new to Mint. I totally blew away windows 10 on my desktop. I LOVE MINT. I purchased a new laptop today and would like to dual boot win 10 and mint just because I have a ton of games that I have for windows. I have read a bunch of responses about how to dual boot, but I don't understand any of them due to the fact that I am totally new to this stuff. Can anyone walk me through the process of dual booting/installing and such? Seriously, I'm a dork and I need my hand held on this one. :) Thank you so much! :D

Have a read of the Installation Guide, especially the Multi-Boot section.

Ok, you have had a few hours. That is enough time to install Linux 18 times. :-)
How did you go?
