"Installation Program and Installation Process: A statement in the official Tour Guide says that the installation program (of Mandriva Desktop 2011) is new. That, is not exactly true. It is still the same Mandriva installer. A few steps have been removed, a few rearranged, but the core of the installer, as far as I can see, has not changed. If you have ever installed previous releases of Mandriva, the image below should be very familiar. It is the step in the installation process that shows the available partitioning methods. Depending on the state of the target hard drive, one or two of the options shown will not be listed. Aside from the "Custom disk partitioning" option, selecting any other option will result in an automated partitioning of the target disk, without further input from you until the boot loader configuration step."
