Looks like the error means "no hard disk list found". Check Mandiva documentation at their website for more information.

I'd do a "fresh" install just because of the many upgrades since..

ofcourse u can install mandrive 10.2 as u installed mandrake 8.1!..and moreover since now in ur system swap,root (if boot is there then boot) partitions are already assigned, the new Mandrive 10.2 will detect those and u need not partition anything fresh,just install!

with regards,

"NO HDLIST FOUND" indicates to me that you have a bad CD. The hdlist files contain information about what rpms are on the CD, available for installing. If the file is missing or damaged, no installation can take place.

And I agree with the other posters that a "fresh, clean" install would be better than an upgrade. There are a *lot* of changes between 8.1 and 10.2!
