If your vista partition is mounted in Linux then ye it will work.

Where is vista mounted on your Mint filesystem? Do you have a windows directory in the root drive: /windows?, do you have it mounted under the /mnt directory: /mnt/windows? Do you call it something else? Do you remember where you copied it to on your windows partition? The root of your partitiion: c:\ or somewhere else?
