priming over peeling paint

I recently had some new drywall put up, abutting old walls. I was going to just prime everything and then paint (i.e.- prime over the old paint on the old wall and prime over the mud on the new wall, and then paint everything one color), but unfortunately the paint on the old wall has started to peel: it is this very glossy paint. I've tried to scrape it off, but it's not being very cooperative. Is there anyway to maybe put mud over the exposed peeled paint, and then prime?

The mud would adhere only as well as the peeling paints. Glossy paints should be sanded to get a good bond with the new paint, so try sanding the peeling areas.

You can go to a home depot or menards etc.. and get a product called no sand.

It is basically a liquid that takes the sheen off making it so you do not have to sand.

However, you have a problem with peeling paint. I would try this: get some acetone in the paint section. try to put some of this on a small section. this will disolve the paint. try it and see what happens.
