LinuxMint 7 runs under WinVPC

Posted by essjae on November 9, 2009

Since its very similar to Ubuntu, but IMHO, superior in many ways, you can use the same “trick” to get LinuxMint 7 to boot in WinVPC.

I selected “Start Linux Mint (compatibility mode)” pressed “tab” to edit options,  I deleted the end “–” and replaced with “vga=791 noreplace-paravirt”, then press “enter”

Full installs for both Ubuntu 9.10 and LinuxMint7 are in progress now.  Once completed, I’ll try and get an update here and on my site.

Edit: installs completed, but are not accessible.  I’ll need to set aside some time to figure this out.
