Hi there,
I updated my System via Preupgrade from F10 to F11. The update went smoothly but after the reboot the System stopped while booting saying
it can't find some drives by their UUIDs. I booted the LiveCD and
disabled them in fstab. after that the system booted without
problems, but I'm not able to mount my other drives.

here's my fstab: http://fpaste.org/paste/15779
and here's the fdisk -l output: http://fpaste.org/paste/15780

I also tried booting the F10 LiveCD and was able to mount them there.
here's the fdisk -l output from F10: http://fpaste.org/paste/15781

I hope you can help me fix this

If you run the command   blkid  it will give you the information you
need to put in your fstab in order to access the drives.

Stan, you have told him how to solve the problem, but I'm curious why he had the problem in the first place.

Theory: if any partitions were reformatted, perhaps to ext4, just maybe the new UUID didn't get copied into the fstab to replace the old one. This would only happen on an upgrade, and I haven't done that yet, as I prefer to reinstall and have all my non-system files in separate filesystems.
