    I run /7 and Mint together all the time - but on the desktop.

    I've got 7 and 8 as a dual boot on the desktop, so don't feel a need for a third OS.

    I have got all 3 atm.

    Just tried to remaster a custom distro.

    I have no idea what I am doing, so will be surprised if it works.

    I've used remastersys to remaster Ubuntu in the past.
    Now did that for LMDE 2012 and there were some issues but the image worked!

    I mostly use this as a live USB.

    I don't have UEFI support on this one (LMDE dosen't have it for now, neither SecureBoot) so my latest laptop cannot use it since I'm tired switching options in the BIOS all the time.

    More tricky, at least for me, is doing a Knoppix remastered image. But luckily I followed all steps well and I was surprised.

    Given your good work with W7, I think you'll succeed.

    I wanted to add a couple of programs to the DVD:
    • GParted (I couldn't find a GUI HDD manager in the default Mint install)
    • Wireshark

    I was able to create a Live Linux Mint MATE DVD of my physical install.

    I couldn't figure out how to make a generic Live DVD though (i.e. I have to use my user name and password to run it).

    I used the info in this link:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ma...arddiskInstall


    BTW, how does the autosave work on this forum (i.e. how do you retrieve the saved copy)?
    The tab crashed when I tried to add the URL and I had to start again.
