You have two problems, the first being the error 15 file not found would mean Grub can't find a necessary file. Does your version of Mandriva still use Grub Legacy. If so, you would need to boot the Live CD and mount your / or /boot partition to see if you have the Grub files in the appropriate place. You might be able to resolve this by reinstalling Grub.

The empty /home partition/directory is another problem. Were you able to mount the /home or / partition to check and as asked above, is /home on a separate partition?

Yes it is still using grub legacy. when i used live cd to reinstall only boot partition , i already configure sda1 as / and sda6 as /home. Im already doing it for how many months if i encountered problem regarding on my system to prevent copying and backing up my data's because it takes long time range. After the reinstallation and log on my account there are no files on my home.


Do anyone can help me to recover those files.
Thanks in advanced.

did you reformat sda6?

if yes, then you can boot from live cd, and try to recover files from sda6 with tools such as : testdisk ..

try to mount /home from a livecd:

1) make an empty folder
2) become root
3) find which partition was the /home :
Code:
      lsblk
      fdisk -l
4) mount the partition : example :
Code:
mount /dev/sda /tmp/test
