Got problems installing linux or windows?
Hi, I was helping an elderly lady with her laptop. She uses windows 7, but she keeps having trouble with her facebook and she calls me every week about something. So I wanted to introduce her to Linux and best one I found to work with everything I use here is the Linux Mint version.
I used the program.. unetbootin to boot it off the harddrive.
Well I let her use it over night and by it being live, she didn't know how to boot to it. So I told her to shut it down and remove the USB drive.
Now for some reason her windows is completely gone! I booted to Linux and all the partitions are gone!
How is this possible? I didn't touch a thing to install it! Now I'm in some deep crap. I guest this is a warning to not use unetbootin to use Linux!
Now I can't install Linux, it errors out with a serious error. can't load the grub boot loader. Now I just hope her HDD isn't crashed.
