I always set up my md /boot manually and it works fine after that.

I don't even upgrade anymore.  I just keep two partitions (Logical 
Volumes actually)--one for Fedora N and one for Fedora N+1.  I always 
do a fresh install, formatting the partition from the older install.  
This has the advantage of providing a backup in case the new Fedora 
doesn't work so well.  Eventually, when updates to the new Fedora fix 
the most annoying bugs, I switch to using it full time.
