Upgrade option in Windows 8


  • I ran the upgrade of Windows 8 64 bit on a laptop running both Windows 7 Professional 64 bit and Linux Mint 12 64 bit.  The upgrade wiped out the Linux partitions and took the entire disk as its home.  Is it not possoble to run a dula boot system using Windows 8 as one of the OS's?

  • Yes, dual boots are supported.  I havent run an upgrade of Win7/Linux though.  Can you share out your \Windows\Panther directory?
