    Please start Mandriva and run these commands from terminal and post your results please, use su - or sudo where needed.
    Code:
    fdisk -l
    Code:
    cat /etc/fstab
    Code:
    mount

    Did you re-install GRUB? Is this message coming after the GRUB screen>?

    I think you can use the Recovery DVD to fixmbr. Which will overwrite the master boot record and replace it to the default.

    At which stage of booting you are getting that error message? Is Vista booting up fine?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
