Exclamation Rescue Fedora install after power outage?


Hello again, friends. Thanks in advance for your time.

Apparently there was a brown out today, as I came home and my Fc15 Box was stuck on the light blue loading screen where the F logo fills up. The logo never even starts to fill. It powers on and posts normally, and the system will run the LiveCD, but when I ask it to boot from local drive, it just flashes a blank screen and says "press a key to reboot." Is there any kind of rescue mode to retrieve the install? I don't want to reinstall if I can avoid it.

Don't know if LiveCD has this option, but normal install media should allow you to enter
Code:
linux rescue
at the initial text prompt; worth a try

Thumbs up Thanks again

That worked immediately. Anaconda is far superior to the worthless Windows rescue utility. Next time I'll take the extra few minutes to download the full install DVD. Thanks, because this isn't the first time you've helped me out.
