Here's a pic of disk management. The Linux Mint install is on Disk 2.
The 49.12GB partition and the 2.14GB partition.
As I say a reinstallation of Windows 7 on that drive knocked out the GRUB loader.
At boot I used to start in GRUB so could choose Mint at that point or go to 7 or Vista which would bring up a regular Windows boot screen.
I'm not really bothered about getting back this Mint install. I had done virtually nothing with it so I've lost nothing.
I've been to busy customizing Windows 7 with one of Mr Grim's themes to play with Linux.
So. I'd like to either regain access to it or just wipe it and leave that partition for another Linux install or Google OS, if it ever appears.
Thanks for your interest, John
