"I installed it using the Install inside of Windows Option"

Notice that it says "Install Inside Windows", not "Run Inside Windows".

Did you reboot? I think you'll have your answer once you do that.

i was out of the room when it rebooted

( i have better things to do with my time than sit and look at a stupid computer do its stupid s---)

i didn't see the boot option window

the default is set to boot into windows asfter a few seconds

unfortunately i remembered about the boot option window and caught it the next time and signed into / logged onto MInt and updated it

what a waste of time

why do you people play with this junk??

i DON'T know and I don't CARE !!

Yeah, it takes a REALLY long time to press the arrow key to boot into Mint, I feel sorry for you. I suggest you sell your computer & watch TV instead - hopefully pressing the buttons on the remote isn't too much of a chore.

Tricky question. You seem to have installed and deleted just about every Linux distro there is over the past few weeks. I'd have thought you'd have learnt the first time you tried such "junk".

What distinguishes man from the animals is his ability to learn from his mistakes.
