I installed Linux mint 14 using the mint4win application as an apllication inside windows. After that I rebooted into the mint OS. then I installed python idle 2.7 and some other softwares. Then I rebooted into mint again. And to my surprise, all of this was gone and I have to install everything again.
What the hell is going on? Is there no other way except installing on hard drive so as to retain changes?
I tried installing on a flash drive but that was insanely slow and I immediately formatted the drive.
