Removing Mandriva from dual boot Vista
I have put Mandriva 2008 on a machine with windows Vista in dual boot
Mandriva does not recognise the wireless card.
It uses the GRUB system to load.
Can anyone advise how I uninstall Mandriva and go back to Vista alone?
Don't make it too complicated please!

You need to remove GRUB, delete the Linux partitions and then optionally merge your Windows partition with the free space created after deleting your linux partitions. You can remove the Linux bootloader and restore the Windows bootloader using Super Grub Disk. As for the other operations, you can use Parted Magic.

Welcome to the forums!
In addition to what daark.child said, here's the HowTo directly from Microsoft for fixing your bootloader:
How to use the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment to troubleshoot and repair startup issues in Windows Vista
They always keep things highly uncomplicated.
Don't forget to check back in when you try Linux again.oz
