comment install mint linux alongside ubuntu on lvm with EFI boot
if i had an installation without lvm but wiht EFI apparently linux mint installs nicely side by side, also installing arch is easy since i just need to update the grub entries to launch it and create a new installation for it. with lvm the issue is re-sizing is a bitch, till now i was unsuccessful in re-sizing a new ubuntu installation without data loss.

you have nice references in your doc you've referred me to in your answer so i'll accept the answer even though i think it's not full. an example for grub and EFI configuration for dual boot would have been nice. oce i'll find it i'll post it as an answer here.

10x rod, i was reading your article when i wrote this post :-) your answered is detailed but with information i mostly knew, i was asking for information regarding how to configure EFI, after all when the BIOS boots up (UEFI style) if will probably look for one boot partition, i'm not sure if the EFI protocol knows to discover more than one and let u choose.

comment cygwin on win7 x64 takes long time to respond
looks like that did the trick, at least for now, i hope the next restart it will still be ok.
