How do I download and install Linux Mint 17 to run side by side with Windows 7 using the power shell?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This isn’t possible.  The closest you can do is install Mint in a virtual machine but even then it has nothing to do with Power Shell.

    Did side by side mean, either create virtual machine and install linux mint or install as a dual boot ! and that two are different. Hoping, you will clear this confusion.

    Actually, I'm sick of Windows. I think I would like to install Linux Mint 17 as the only OS. My laptop has no internal CD or DVD ROM. I'm using an external, and it just wouldn't load the OS. Finally, I rebooted, pressed delete, and went into the BIOS setup. I noticed a place where I could get it to boot from the external DVD. Presto changeo! I'm now running Linux Mint 17 exclusively. If nothing else, you folks encouraged me to get over my nervousness and tinker with the BIOS settings. Thank you for your encouragement.

    You have solved your probs own ! that's fine, but still there is a confusion, have u installed both or just remove windows and install Linux Mint as only OS, while already you wrote like "install Linux Mint 17 as the only OS.".

    I removed Windows and installed Linux Mint 17. I'll be using Linux from now on. I'll never go back to Windows!
