Can you remember what updates were installed? When you say "not booting", what exactly happens? Do you get an error or a blank screen or what?

I cant remember the updates.
The cursor stays eternaly there blinking waiting to the Grub to start and nothing.(Black Screen)

I tried to boot Fedora Live-CD and I realized I have now two Kernels now(One probably from the updates-seems to be a new version) (/boot).


Thanks

it looks like the problem with bootloader. try to put your new kernel to /boot/grub/menu.lst and reboot. that should do it

Obviously a bootloading problem, but it would be good to know which program caused the problem during the update! I'm doing Fedora 10 updating as well, and it would be nice to avoid the same situation. Please send a follow-up notice, if you were able to track down the cause. Thanks!
