Linux Mint Windows XP Dual boot

Installing Windows on a Linux Mint Computer and then fixing MBR after Windows install

Many, who do a dual boot with any Linux and Windows will face the problem of Master Boot Record (MBR). In easier words, one of them (Windows or Linux) wont boot after installing/uninstalling the other. This is a small guide I hope many would find it useful.

Have you tried the "Boot-Repair-Disk" utility?

Download the tool (ISO file) and burn an image CD. Then boot from that CD. Download it from here: http://sourceforge.net/p/boot-repair-cd/home/Home/

Solr for two sites running Drupal 6 Search on Tomcat 6 / CentOS 6

The easiest way to get Solr running on your Drupal web site is to use the hosted service provided by Acquia; it is way easier than running your own Solr. You simply point your queries to their Solr server and you’re done.
