As of this morning my dual-boot attempt went south. This as far as I can see is mainly due to the windows boot loader and grub 2 and I'm really not sure how to fix the issue other than deleting Mint 14 and retrying. I used e boot easybsd in windows to set up the boot menu and it worked last night then reacted bad this morning, this issue is as follows:
When I first boot up the laptop i come to the Linux boot loader and I scroll all the way down to the bottom and select Win 7 then it immediately throws my into the windows boot loader where it gives me the choice for Win 7 or Mint 14. If I choose Mint 14 from it growls at with a message that scrolls across top of screen quickly and tosses me back to grub 2 and starts the process again. So it seems to me that everyone wants to start from their own respective boot loaders.
The error message that displays is
Try (hd0,0) : NTFS5 : no ang0 Try (hd0,1) NTFS5 : Initialize variable space... Starting cmain()... (hd0,3) [multiboot- kledge , loadaddr = 0x100000 , text - and - data = 0x6739 , bss = 0x0 , entry = 0x100968]
