Thank you Keith. That looks good. Once I get Windows 8 going and some of the stuff on my Android tablet, that will be my next project. How does one get this Cinnamon desktop. Is that a standard option with Mint.
I've used Linux Mint + MATE since it was introduced (in VMs).
MATE is the other standard desktop environment for Linux Mint.

I just replaced Ubuntu 10 with Linux Mint 14 (MATE) because I could not get the ATI graphics card driver to work.
It worked "out of the box" in LM 14M (no tinkering required).

The network also set itself up without any tinkering.

I had to download/install:
  • "GParted" (I couldn't find a built-in GUI disc partition manager).
  • "Wireshark"
I was able to:
  • Transfer my customised desktop icons/theme to LM 14M (from Ubuntu 10) without any problems.
  • Use "Banshee" and "VLC" to play my media files without any problems.

For those of you using VMs, what do you do when and if you decide you want to start using a 'guest' OS (in my case Windows 8), as the 'host' OS?

I started a Windows 8 V2P thread over on eightforums, but I thought I would check-in here to see what you all are doing.

If it would be more beneficial/easy to change things around now before I start building the Windows 8 drive, I might do that... Can I use Macrium to perform such a task?

I downloaded Macrium Reflect free version, made an image on my external HD,
and then proceeded to make the boot disc and have some questions.

1) When I look at the CD, it has four folders and 6 files:
Name:  Macrium Boot CD.jpg
Views: 10
Size:  54.3 KB

What is going on with the "Files Ready to be Written?"

2) There is an ISO image left on the desktop KB3AIK_EN
Is this going to be needed for Macrium Reflect in the future?

3) How do I make sure this restore (boot) disc is going to work?

thanks - prof james

1. Looks OK to me. This .iso must be written (burnt) to a CD.

2. That's probably the one to be burnt to CD

3. Make a small 2GB partition, copy some data into it and image that small partition. Then wipe the data you copied earlier and restore with the use of said CD. If your data is back, the recovery worked.

The file ready to be written is a Desktop.ini file, i see them too. Some Windows 7 glitch I think as I've never used it.
