In my opinion rawhide is the not stable version.
Did you still have the Fedora 8 version try to get commandline
and give the output of the command fdsik -l {L lower case}(as root)

You are doing good testing!

Upgrade it further... you may have something like Fedora 10!

Rawhide is updated daily.

Try to boot the kernel directly and Upgrade!

Post h/w specs too.

With a rescue cd you can chroot and reinstall grub too.
