Re: grub install failed with latest F10 update



I am having the same problem.  Everything was working fine over the past year with Fedora 9 and no problems with Fedora 10 with an Nvidia motherboard with hardware Raid1. Now since the latest update (kernel-2.6.27.15-170.2.24.fc10.i686) when I reboot the screen just says "GRUB".

Booting the rescue disk and trying to install grub results in similar messages about 

/dev/mapper/nvidia_ebicibgip1 does not have any corresponding BIOS drive

Any help would be appreciated.

Below are my relevant setup details:
