Installing Mint on a second hard drive with Windows 7 on the primary…
Asked by: Richard
General, Linux Mint
I have installed Mint 11 on my D: drive to give it access to an entire Hard Drive, using the walk through from here: http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2010/12/01/how-to-dual-boot-linux-mint-10-or-ubuntu-10-10-and-windows-7-on-a-computer-with-two-hard-drives/
Things went fine, till after I finished with EasyBCD, and re-booted. It showed up on the dual boot screen just fine. Just like another Mint I have sharing the C: drive. BUT, the link on the dual boot screen, eventhough I made sure it was marked differently then the other mint, took me to Mint on the C: drive. I thought that maybe it wasn’t pointing to the correct drive, so went back into Windows 7, and EasyBCD, discovered my D: drive is gone. Funny thing is, I can see it from my C: Mint. Probably because they are both using Ext4, and apparently Windows doesn’t see Ext4.
BTW… I also noticed that on the walk through mentioned above, the image of EasyBCD shows the new Mint install also being on the C: drive. NOT the D:
So how do I fix this problem?
Thanks for any assistance you could give me.
PS… I’m not going to keep Mint on the C: drive after this problem is taken care of. Mainly because I want more disk space.
