Fedora 16 Installation

After installing fedora 16 in dual boot, it is not booting up, instead it sits in GRUB prompt. Any idea to resolve this issue. But the same is working in Virtual Box.

What kind of hardware are you running?
Is it just sitting there or does it attempt to boot and fails?
What options are listed?

I have found the solution for this. I have 2 HDD. 1 with Windows and another one is Fedora 16. When I installed Fedora 16, and rebooting the GRUB prompt is getting displayed and not booting. When I have changed the booting order of the HDD in BIOS as Fedora 16 HDD, it booted automatically and worked perfectly with the Dual Boot.

Thank you all.
