Bricked FC11 Upgrade


I just upgraded via preupgrade-cli (from a functioning FC10 install), rebooted, the upgrade process completed, then the system rebooted and I just see a blinking white cursor now.

I'm able to boot up from a LiveCD version of FC11 I have installed on a USB key (using ubootin), but I can't figure out why the system wont load.

My menu.lst:

Code:
default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
#hiddenmenu
title Fedora (2.6.29.4-167.fc11.x86_64)
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.29.4-167.fc11.x86_64 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
    initrd /initrd-2.6.29.4-167.fc11.x86_64.img
Also, here's fdisk: (sda and sdb are both unpartitioned drives in the machine being used for something else. All those crazy other drives are from the live cd I suspect. My system drive is supposed to be sdc.

Code:
Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders

Anyone know what I could do?

Your root is not at (hd0,0)

edit grub at start (press 'e')

fix grub.conf later

I'll have to try that when I get home.

Is there any reason why the drive ordering would have changed after the upgrade? Seems really weird..

Like, why aren't the drives assigned by their physical location. blarg. :P

Sorry to ask such a simple question. How did you come to that conclusion? Would you mind pointing it out on the aforementioned scripts?

Thanks,


Jon
