I'm a long time user of Linux Mint KDE and recently i heard about Mandriva and downloaded it. I've used Linux Mint within Windows. (On autorun, it has an option "install inside windows")

On Uninstalling it, there's no boot problems.

Can I do the same for Mandriva Linux One? There's no such option. Because , I don't want to have Grub as main bootloader - When I uninstall it in the future, "grub rescue" will come and scare me...

I don't think so, but perhaps you should give Ubuntu a shot. It has a feature where you can install it on a Windows partition too. – user3463 Jan 22 '11 at 1:32
I've used it previously . Linux Mint is an ubuntu flavor and i want a switch from it . – vettipayyan Jan 22 '11 at 1:36

You can use VirtualBox to run Mandriva.
