mac you can stop laughing now ;)

Can you post the output from:
Code:
sudo fdisk -l

(BTW, that's a lower case L not a 1)
and
Code:
sudo blkid

At the risk of asking another dumb question, can I just delete partition that peppermint 3 is currently in so that all the computer has is one partition with windows on it left? Then just install peppermint 4 beside of it in the standard way. I guess the other thing is the current boot menu which would need to be changed. Thanks. Jeff

That's precisely what I was going to suggest.

delete the sda5 and sda6 partitions .. either from within Windows, or from within Gparted (which you'll find in the Peppermint4 LiveCD/LiveUSB menus .. just be careful not to delete the wrong partition)

Then install alongside Windows.

The GRUB menu should be taken care of automatically.

Be Aware - deleting the Peppermint 3 partitions will leave Windows unable to boot until you've installed Peppermint 4 (or reinstalled the Windows bootloader)

Shouldn't matter if you delete the partitions from the PM4 (or any other distro) LiveCD/LiveUSB .. or from Windows.

BUT it would be a good idea to run a file system check in Windows first.

And remember, once you remove PM3, windows won't boot till you've installed PM4
(which is why I said best to do a Windows file system check FIRST)

I have installed Peppermint 4 although I still have to check the dual boot to windows. However, on the bottom tool bar there two boxes with nothing in them in location where it used to say your system is up to date. I'm concerned that something didn't install correctly. Or I don't understand what is different. Can you let me know if something is missing?

So there is no icon for the updater anymore? I miss that. Can it be added?

Just so know, I deleted the partitions for Peppermint three and installed Peppermint four successfully along side Windows XP. So far it appears to have worked ok. Hopefully this adventure will help others who want to move to Peppermint four. Thanks. Jeff

This update manager doesn't have a tray icon. It is configured to check automatically and inform you of new updates. You can adjust the preferences with the "Software and Updates" option in the Preferences menu.
