I spend the whole of last weekend attempting to get the latest Mint installed on my brand new 7200 3TB drive, but try as I may, lots of googling and assuming the gaps I ended up having a "working" system. (Strange enough Pinguy installed correctly, but the system is just too one the edge for me aka unstable)
Set UEFI option in the bios (Thanks MyWorld)
The I have created the following with GParted
Create GPT partition Table
200MB Primary UFS
200MB Primary Fat /Boot Boot flag set
50GB Primary ext4 /
rest Primary ext4 /home
when the installation concludes with Mint, grub fails to install. I then start Pinguy/Rescueremix for for a Boot-repair, only after numerous attempt it worked;
However, when starting up I get a grub error, and just pressing "enter" the pc completes a successful boot!
May I ask if anyone was successful with this to please provide me with their partition configuration with gparted that should be done prior to attempting the installation. In particular,
Types of partitions, file systems, flags, recommended size and sequence.
Any advice would be appreciated.
