I just reinstalled Windows on two machines, on which there were also Linux installations on their own partitions. The partitions still show as existing in Disk Management, but I have lost the ability to choose which OS to boot into at start up. I'm guessing it is because the reinstallation of Windows over-wrote the existing boot configuration. I have Linux Mint Maya on an older XP Home, 32 bit machine, and Linux Mint Cinnamon on a newer Windows 7 Ultimate, 64 bit machine,
I'm guessing this can be remedied through some kind of command prompt or booting from the install CDs and accessing that way, but I don't want to try this without some sound advice. As always, thanks in advance.
