Installation / Re: Install Peppermint 5 64 bit beside of Windows 7
« on: August 15, 2014, 02:14:11 pm »
I have not changed anything in the bios.  In order to boot to peppermint live on the usb I am using F12 and selecting the usb as you requested.  Otherwise the system boots directly to windows on the hard drive.

Ok.  I went into the bios and changed the boot order so the hard drive is not ahead of the usb drive and it is now sda as you requested.  Thanks.

The Peppermint installer does not recognize that windows 7 is installed.  Please see the attached output from fdisk.

sda is the usb drive with Peppermint and sdb s the hardrive of my Lenovo X130e.  Please advise how I can install Peppermint 5 beside of windows as that option does not show on the install menu.  Thanks.

I created the partitions using Gparted and they show up under gparted.  That's all I can say.  I do have the disks as I just did a full re-install of windows 7 recovering from my first try at this.  I'm really disappointed that this is so difficult.  To my knowledge, I have a "standard" installation of windows 7.  Thanks.

The reason I did the separate home partition is that is what AndyInMokum said I should do.  I created the partitions before the installation as I was instructed to do.  I just created the partitions and did not begin the install yet as I did not want to do something wrong.  I mean the Peppermint installer does not detect Windows 7 at all and does not give me an option to install Peppermint 5 beside windows 7.  However, windows 7 is in fact installed and operating.  This is really difficult.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

I tried what you are suggesting, but the Peppermint install still does not detect Windows 7 and the option of a side by side installation is not available.  That is what started this in the first place and why I'm trying to install it this way.  I'm really at a loss for what to do now.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

AndyInMokum or anyone who can help:

I set up the partitions for Peppermint 5 installation as described above.  However, I 'm confused as I have the root partition at 30 gig, the swap partition at 9 gig, and the home partition at 18 gig.  As I'm beginning the installation you indicate that the root partition will be the smaller of the two ext4 partitions.  I must have done something wrong as as I have the home partition smaller.  Please advise if I need to change this and if so how.  I don't want to do this installation wrong.  Thanks for your help.

I booted to the Peppermint 5 live USB and ran gparted.  What I see is 3 partitions as follows:

/dev/sda1  Size is 100.00 MIB   Format Fat32  Flag is Boot
/dev/sda2 Size is 128.00 Mib Unknown Format   Flag is msftres
/dev/sda3  Size is 297.87 Gib Format NTFS  Flag is msftdata
unallocated  size is 1.34 Mib  everything else is blank.

In your write up above you said I should see one large partition but I see 3.  So I thought I better show you this.  Please let me know what I should do.  Thanks.

AndyInMokum,

I have some questions on your explanation above.  After resizing the windows partition and you begin formatting, the first right click when you select new is to format the whole space - right? I'm confused because you keep saying click on the gray unallocated space but I thought you allocated it with the first procedure you indicate to do.  Sorry for asking a dumb question but I'm new to this process.  Can you clarify this a little more?  Thanks.  Jeff

AndyInMokum,
Thanks for the information.  I won't be able to get at this for a while as I'll be on the road the next two weeks for business.  I'll need to digest this first.  I just reloaded everything to a new install of windows 7 so I already have a back up of data/files.  Thanks again for your help.  Jeff

The partitions I have are what was automatically set up by windows 7 pro.  I used the windows 7 setup disk and deleted the existing linux partitions.  Windows proceeded to do the rest automatically.   I then spent a great deal of time reloading everything from backups.  Incidently, the previous disk info you found was before I reloaded windows from scratch.  The last info is what i have now.  Thanks.

AndyInMokum

Thanks for your suggestion.  Can you give me more detail on how to create the partitions you are suggesting?  Should I use windows for that or gparted?  In either case you describe it in detail?  I'm not very adept at working with partitions so I'm a little nervous about it.  After creating the partitions will Peppermint then automatically recognize windows7 and install to the new partitions along side or do I have to that manually?  Thanks.

shmitzr1984,
I have a different problem.  Peppermint 5 install does not recognize that I have windows 7 installed on the PC so I cannot install beside of windows 7 at all.  Thanks.  Jeff

Yes.  I used the whole disk for windows 7.

See the following:

Can anyone walk me through how I could install Peppermint 5 now since even the 32 bit version does not recognize windows 7?  Thanks.  Jeff

All,

Thanks for the help.  When this happened I selected replace Peppermint 5 using the 64 bit live usb.  That's when the system not only replaced Peppermint 5 but also wiped my entire system in the process.  Not good. 

I have spent the better part of 2 days getting my machine back so I can use it with windows 7.  I use this machine on the road so I need it desperately to work.  I don't know if I have enough nerve to try to install Peppermint 5 again.  If I do I can tell you it will only be the 32 bit version.  The 64 bit version install scares me.  Thanks.  Jeff

Edit
I just booted up with the Peppermint 5 32 bit version live usb.  When beginning install I get this "the system does not detect an operating system in this computer".   Obviously, I just re-installed windows 7.  There is something very wrong with the install detection.  Thanks.  Jeff
