    what do you mean by loading Old Linux? if Mandriva installer has overwritten older Linux then GRUB should boot up Mandriva only.
    is Windows booting up correctly? did you change anything in Boot Loader section during installation?
    post the output of these commands
    Code:
    fdisk -l
    df -h
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    YES WINDOWS BOOTING UP CORRECTLY, PREVIOUSLY I HAD SABAYON LINUX WHEN I BOOT UP WITH GRUB LOADER IT IS BOOTING SABAYON BUT NOT BOOTING MANDRIVA, I DID NOT CHECK YOUR GIVEN COMMANDS I WILL CHECK THIS TODAY AND REPORT TOMORROW.
