Re: F9 - F10 Upgrade Left only GRUB prompt

I used preupgrade (1.0.0-1.fc9.noarch) to upgrade a Dell Latitude laptop from F9 to F10. Every thing seemed to go fine but on reboot I'm getting only a GRUB prompt.

The machine had a fresh F9 install (not an upgrade) and was fully up to date. Is this a case of grub.conf being out of wack or a naming issued with the disk partitions? I've been googling and found a couple of things to check out but I had to "abandon" the machine at work so I won't be able to get back to it until later in the week to get more details.

Any insight about what to look for or possible remedial actions would be most gratefully appreciated.



Hey Richard,
It's happened to me a few times in the past. Reinstall GRUB. If you don't know how to do it let me know and I'll post the instructions. If you look in the Fedora list archives, you'll find them there too since I've posted them before.

From what I've been reading on the forums, this seems to be happening a lot with upgrading to F10, it happened to me yesterday. Has it been logged as a bug? Any insight into why it's happening?
