Angry GRUB hangs


My Fedora 7 box was stopped by a local power outage while I was away last week. Now it will not boot up beyond a solitary GRUB lable.

The following gets displayed before the PC just hangs:-

Boot from CD/DVD:
GRUB

How do I correct this issue?

First step would be to validate all your partitions. I presume Fedora CD/DVD will have a rescue mode - use that to ensure partitions (especially on LVM) can be reached.
Then fsck all your partitions/LVs.

If the grub problem persists, you should be able to fix it from the same rescue mode.
