personally i started this post to get the multiple alternatives in one place for other people also for out of the box ideas that can be debated  so any input along the lines s helpful

what if you run the the  Windows API's, libraries in a virtual emulator that works as an attachment to the shell?

or by making something like oracal os but for the API's

my computer specs:

Intel Core i7-4790K Haswell Quad-Core 4.0GHz
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) - 16GB (2 x 8GB)
EVGA GeForce GTX 970 Superclocked 4GB GDDR5
MSI H97I AC LGA 1150 Motherboard

If Peppermint is to be the only OS on the internal HDD I suggest you format the drive by swapping from  GTP  to an msdos style partition table.

BE AWARE - The following will COMPLETELY erase the hard drive

Boot to the LiveUSB

Fire up GPArted (menu > System Tools > GParted)

In GParted, make sure you're operating on the internal HDD .. then select

Device > Create partition Table

then choose an msdos partition table.

If it says it cannot continue due to partitions being mounted .. clcik the swap partition and select "swapoff", then try again.

Once you've created the msdos partition table .. try installing Peppermint 5 again.

this worked thanks

      Quick question; would i get paid, to work for ReactOS Foundation? Like my computer forensic skills, would come handy. I can reprogram, based on the bit by bit information, i get from forensic analysis. I am also working on a program; that would use, this information, to organize a source code.  ;D

      Also I just decided to run windows 7 ultimate black edition 32 bit with, Oracle on my 64bit, 16gb flash memory card; computer.

personally if i did not have anxiety from being a burnt out programmer i would customize the unix in linux to be compatible with windows   

i need linux for the forensic compatible so i can be proactive in my college class and windows's shell triggers my anger issues

Hey i know i can install wine, and configure it; or install play on linux. But what i need, is to run any windows example would be from cs6 to custom apps made by non commercial sources and games .

i might need to format the internal hard-drive and re-install peppermint 5 anyways forgot the decrpytion passphrase

i did do the option for the full disk incrption i had this issue befor when i intalled it not doing so

 what is the command for the gnu thingy?

Though I was going to do some shady stuff. Nothing to big; no money involved. Just spoofing the mac address; for the wifi, at the hotel I live in. So it very well could just be the universe saying, "HELL NO" or "YOUR KUNG FU DENIED".  :P

It does not give an error it says:

GNU GRUB version 2.02~beta2-9ubuntu1

Minimal Bash-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions.
