Problems with dual booting Mint 10 and Windows 7
Hi, my name is Ed and I guess I have a few basic questions about dual booting Win7 and Mint 10. I have a HP Omni Pro 110 machine with Win 7 installed, and I'd like to dual boot it with Mint 10. My problem with this is that I had an HP laptop with Vista installed and I dual booted it with Mint 10 and it worked fine - for about two months, then the motherboard fried. Is this a common issue between Windows and Linux, just a Vista thing, or was my laptop doomed anyway? And, is it safe to dual boot Win 7 and Mint 10 on my new computer? Any help would be much appreciated!
