Have you removed the physical volume that used to
contain /dev/VolGroup00 ?  

In the fstab you have the lines in which you have commented out the one
related to /old_disk but did not comment out the one related to swap on
the same volume group.

I would delete both lines related to VolGroup00 and try again. (The swap
partition in that line is the one being reported as an error.)
