Linux Mint and Windows Vista ~ (Info) Dual Boot-2

Ok…
So I am back here after having a rough time with my system after I did the above installs.
My system crashed after I installed another OS called Centos and tried one more…
I had taken backup of whole data so it did not cost me much except precious time of my life….
SO then the issue was like this…
I reinstalled two times the same OS(mint) and had mounted partitions from windows here too.
But then I dont know y it happened.
After the third install…OS did not let me unmount it…
None of them…
So then I tried reinstalling another OS and then too I was failure…

Next thing I did was restoring the Vista from my recovery CD, but then it also hung…
I suppose this happened because the unmounted partitions were not kind of free…

So I created a new disc image from Linux Mint installation on the whole disc ( which I did unknowingly or accidently without looking at the note that this would erase all the data on my HDD)
So I was left with a system not more than a machine minus OS…

Next thing is back to restoring Vista…
I could do it now…Successfully did it(created three primary paritions)

So today after I completed my CAT exam(which was My God very very hard and threatening kind of) I sat down installing Mint again….
Installed mint on third primary part and then installed SUSE 10 on additional logical partition I had to create…

The GRUB boot loaded, is showing all three systems now during boot….
Congratulations to me…
