Isn't it the same package manager? It should be able to do the same on mint. Or may be fstab can be copied somewhere and then back at some point?

Linux Mint, starting from version 17, marks a departure from previous releases (this is why you migh have encountered difficulties in upgrading) by keeping the same code base (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS) for the next 5 years. So, during this time, it will basically be a rolling-distribution, as some software will get updated just as regular (security fixes etc.) happens.

Truly rolling or only security updates?
Well, I'm ok with a fresh install. But can it run under the target linux itself? Or rather what to run from the disk? Since mint4win installation is a virtual disk, I'm not sure the installer will find it gracefully, they're usually partition-oriented. Not sure if this eliminates problem with fstab though.
