rjm65,
My PC currently has 3 partitions.  It had 5 until I deleted/recovered the two that were being used for Peppermint 4.  Thanks.  Jeff

Mac,
I'll do as you ask, but in the meantime, I wanted to say that I'm trying to install the 64bit version of P5.  I did have the 64 bit version of P4 on this machine before.  However, if I try to install the 32 bit version it recognizes windows 7 and offers to install P5 beside it.  I hate to do that as I have 8 gig on this system and it won't be recognized under 32 bit.  I get the info you wanted but I thought that might tell you something.  Thanks.  Jeff.

New Users / Peppermint 5 Does Not Detect Windows 7
« on: June 27, 2014, 05:29:43 pm »
I cannot install Peppermint 5 to dual boot with Windows 7 pro.  I had Peppermint 4 installed on my Lenovo X130e.  I used easybcd to remove the grub boot loader and reclaimed the linux partitions under windows.  Then I booted to Peppermint Live USB and tried to install Peppermint 5.  However, when it starts the install it says it does not detect another operating system on the computer and does not give me the option to install Peppermint 5 beside of Windows 7 as I it normally does.  Windows 7 Pro is in fact installed on the PC and boots up and runs fine.  How can I get the Peppermint 5 to recognize that Windows 7 is there and install the dual boot system as I want to?  Looking for a solution as soon as possible.  Thanks.  Jeff

After working on the problem for several hours last night, I have fixed the problem.  In the end, I booted to the Peppermint Live USB and downloaded boot-repair from Ubuntu.  I ran it and it fixed the problem automatically and everything works fine now.  That program is really awesome.  Thank you.  Jeff S.
