FC 15 will not boot after upgrade kernel panic?


Finished a successful preupgrade from FC 14 to FC15 but now the system fails to boot the new FC15 kernel 2.6.38.6-27.fc15.i686 and leave me with a flashing Caps and Scroll Lock key lights. Hitting any key on te keyborad causes the entire system to freeze and needs a power off and on to restart it.

How do I resolve this issue? Screen photo of the boot up error attached.

grub.conf below:

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda3
# initrd /initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hda
#
timeout=15
default 0
#fallback 1
fallback 2
#
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
# hiddenmenu

I'm not familiar with the Fedora major-version upgrade process (for me it has always been a fresh install). But have you tried booting from a previous kernel? Your grub config shows two others are still installed.

Yes without success the machine never finishes startup it stops during the process of starting the various services and locks up. It will boot the LiveCD just fine however for FC15.
