Hi Paul.

I double boot and never had a problem (sample of 1 of course)

But I've even upgraded windows and just reinstalled Grub.

One gotcha I have seen with Mint: dual booting hassles.
Twice I have seen cases where people installed Mint, then got rid of
it and tried to dual-boot with Ubuntu and Windows, and then had
problems getting their Windows partition to boot.

I am not sure whether this was a fluke or whether it is systematic,
but it is one issue that has come up.
