weird bootup problem

I'm getting this absolutely whacky bootup problem ever sice I upgraded to fedora core 2.I have a dual partition system with debian woody.Each time I shutdown my system from fedora,i can't boot it the next time I power up.The system simply stops after doing the boot checks.I don't get a login prompt and HD led goes off showing no hard disk activity.Fedora boots up fine after power on if I shutdown the system from Debian.I'm totally flumoxxed as to what the problem could be.
One possible reason could have been that I had allocated only 100 megs to the boot partition.But when I saw that the boot image was very small,I modifie the boot to 15 megs.But even when I had a 100 mb /boot,I used to get the same problem.Please advise,coz to access fedora I have to first boot to debian and then back.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

The twin of this post can be found here Please post any replies to it, as this thread has been flagged for closure.

corbis_demon -- Accidental double posts occasionally happen, and as long as a person does not habitually double-post or cross-post, it usually is not that big of a deal. If you realize you have created a double post, or if you discover a double post anywhere else at LQ, please use the "Report this post to a moderator" function in the lower right-hand corner of the post. You will be asked for a reason why the post should be flagged, and you can simply explain that it's a double post, and one of the pair should be closed. Thanks -- J.W.
