I just tried to install Linux Mint on my Dell Studio Desktop 540 PC with Windows 7 SP1. Mint created its own partition and installed ( I gave it 200.6 GB). I got a "Failed to Load" error from Mint and on restart there was no dual boot option to go into Mint. I tried installing again but this time I allowed Mint to dismount the various partitions on the PC such as my USB stick and SD Card. After restart still no dual boot and I could not find the dual boot option in my BIOS. In an attempt to regain my disk space I downloaded EaseUS Home Edition but it was unable to find my now unallocated disk space. I was able to use Windows' Disk Management to extend C: into most of the unallocated disk space but I was left with 5.96 GBs of Free Space, apparently from the second install attempt. I have assigned that drive a Drive Label "L" and it is showing up as healthy and as a Logical Drive on the PC.
Now, how can I get back that drive space and assign it into C:? Or should I just use it to store files in and count my blessings? Plus, I liked the Mint OS and am using it on the DVD but am now afraid to try another install.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
