    Well when Live Install opened I had to do a bunch of weird partition stuff...
    What I think I will do to make it all simpler for myself is,
    1. Boot Mandriva from the disk
    2. Back up all my partitions
    3. Reformat all my partitions
    4. Completely start over...

    This way I can get a clean install of everything and I'll just follow some instructions on doing the tri-boot from clean installs that I found...

    (am I making sense?)

    I have both Mandriva and Ubuntu...Which would people recommend because Mandriva was kind of laggy...

    There are probably other methods for this recovery, but a fresh install can clear it all up. When reinstalling, just pay close attention to where you put your partitions.

    The only menu you can have with two versions of Windows and Linux is a Windows bootloader menu. EasyBCD is probably the easiest way for you to sort things out. I think Mandriva uses Grub2 so I am not sure if easybcd will work ... the good news is you don't need to reinstall to try it
