I've been trying to change some of my operating systems. Still looking for just the right ones. I tried installing Peach over Fedora, and I had to do a reformat on live gparted and erase Fedora before I could do that. But one problem is I still have the grub on my boot partition, and I can't seem to install a Peach grub to open Peach. The Fedora grub (while it is trying to boot) says Fedora doesn't exist on the computer, and it gets into the bios to "dracut:/#" and has a flashing underscore next, and doesn't go beyond that. Can I somehow delete those 3 boot options from my boot partition, and how. Also, and more important. I can't install the grub for Peach in the boot partition. The install on the computer asks if I want to install it on another partition. It might be a ubuntu grub, as Peach is supposed to be a hybrid between ubuntu and another deb, or something like that. Peach says it has 2 different grubs (grub 2 and burg) but it won't let me change which I try to install, saying it doesn't have a device to go to. I wrote the message down somewhere, and now can't find it. Not very good with screenshot yet either, especially from a live disk. Gparted from the live disk says Peach is installed on sda13, where I had fedora, and the size is right for it. Is there some way I can access it to use it installed. I like it on a live disk. I also have mint, on sda7 which I haven't been able to access, since I installed Zorin (another ubuntu os). I have read several places the all the ubuntu grubs are named the same, because of that, you can't have 2 on the same partition. Would there be a way to change the name somewhere and get them both on, add a 2 or something? Or is there another way to access the OS? I would also like to try Lxle, but it is also a ubuntu distro. Would it work to install the grub on a different partition, like maybe have 2 or 3 boot partitions? If I put it on the root partition, how would I access it at boot up?
I have a 500 gb systemmax built to my specs with 2.007 gb ram, 2 ghz of processor speed with duo core. Built for xp several years ago. Can't seem to find screenshot again, nor get control c to work in gparted, but.

This is my partition table. It is an older bios machine. Legacy I think. I would appreciate any help. Thank you.
