"After booting up the computer from the Linux Mint 10 CD or DVD into the Live environment, begin the installation process by clicking on the Install Linux Mint icon on the desktop. The image below shows the third step of that installation process. The first option shows that the installer has detected another operating system on the hard drive. Click on the Forward button to go to the next step.

"The test installation used for this tutorial was in a virtual environment with about 75 GB of disk space. Windows 7 was installed on this hard drive.

You can resize it by positioning the cursor between both sections as shown below and dragging to the left or right."
