No, you can shrink the partition with Windows 8.1, in order to provide enough space to install other operating systems. You'll want to make a backup copy of your Windows install, though, in case anything goes wrong. Something like GNU Parted can do this, I believe, and will certainly be available on your Linux Mint installation media. Note that you cannot ...

There is another, not so 'brutal' approach to fixing this. This has bit me more than once. Go to the VMWare Virtual Network Editor, and in the VMNet Information section for "Bridged", pull the drop down "Bridged to:" and change from Automatic to your physical adapter name.

You need to do tell Clonezilla to do a "device-device" clone instead of a "device-image" clone. Boot Clonezilla Live. Select "Other modes" form the boot menu. Select "Clonezilla live (To RAM. Boot media can be removed later)". It will load into memory (so that it's not using any drives). When it loads, go through start up options, and when it comes time, ...

On my Linux Mint 17.1, the /etc/ssl/certs directory contains one actual file (ca-certificates.crt) and about 500 links to files in /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/ . If you went to the target directory and deleted the unwanted files there, you might have slightly more permanent deletion. But, the ca-certificates package looks like it would just ...
