I recently installed Fedora 20 on my Samsung series 3 laptop. I wanted to try Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon 64bit. So, this is what I did,

I had a 42 gb partition to install linux of which i used, 25gb for '/' 15gb for 'home' 500mb for 'boot' 1gb for 'swap'

During Mint installation I just select existing 'home', 'boot' and 'swap' without formatting them. For '/' i selected format partition and continued with the installation which went fine. But in the grub menu, I got option like

'Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon 64-bit, 3.11.20_fc20_x86_64' 'Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon 64-bit, 3.11.20_fc20_x86_64 (recovery)'.

I didn't notice this until I got the fedora icon loading and the screen going blank. But in the grub menu there was 'previous linux version' throw which I had another Mint entry which went straight to the OS without any issue.

I would like to know what have I done wrong or what have I missed.

Please do let me know if I should be anymore clearer.

Thanks in advance, :) :)
