    Need Help re Bootloader

    I am currently trying to install Mandriva Ltd Edition 2005 on a PC and during the installation procedure it goes through steps etc. I've come up to this part where I need to choose/install the bootloader.

    The options I get are:

    1. First sector of drive (MBR)
    2. First sector of the root partition
    3. On Floppy
    4. Skip

    Now I am not using or running any other OS on this PC and Mandriva 2005 will be the only one that will be running/installed on it.

    MBR is your best bet .
    Debian Jessie x86_64 & armhf :: LibreELEC is the solution for your Linux-based HTPC setups.

    Put the boot loader on the mbr.

    All Linuxs need a boot loader, so even though you only intend to use a single OS on your PC, you still need to install a bootloader.

    have fun


    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
