Finished a successful preupgrade from FC 14 to FC15 but now the system fails to boot the new FC15 kernel 22.214.171.124-27.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.

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.
