Multiboot: Windows 7, Ubuntu 12.10, Linux Mint 14?
I am currently running a dual boot setup with Ununtu 12.10 x64 and Windows 7 Home Premium x64 I was wondering if I could add Linux Mint 14 to the setup. Is this possible? I tried installing it 'alongside windows' but it said i have to uninstall Ubuntu. I haven't done that much work with system booting as of yet but i catch on pretty quick with this sort of stuff. Also, does anyone have a link to where I could download the correct version of Linux Mint 14 for my PC? I have downloaded one already but am not sure whether or not it is the right one. Then name is 'linuxmint-14.1-mate-dvd-64bit.iso'. I would also like a link to a detailed tutorial on how to setup what I'm looking for and a list of recommended software (I've got Paragon Partition Manager 12 and EasyBCD 2.2).
Thanks in advance,

It should be possible, I used to have a tripple boot myself for a while. Just make sure you add Mint to Grub.
Current version of Mint:
Download - Linux Mint
Oke, first you'll need to check if you have an empty partition to install Mint on. If not, create one.
You can check this in "disk management".
If you have enough partitions Ubuntu should stop giving you the uninstall message, and Mint should just install itself using the default installer.
And for the detailed toturial:
Official user guide
And finally the software:
Lots and lots of programs
The official Linux Mint software portal (I recommend using this one)
Good luck and keep us posted on your progress!
