Unhappy Error 15 on boot after F15 -> F16 Preupgrade on dual boot machine

Ok, it seems i've been nailed by the installation bug too.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=729457
In the link above they mention this
Ran grub2-install --force /dev/sda11 and can now chainload to grub2 bootloader
on sda11. Note that --grub-setup=/bin/true has to be omitted.


How can I do this. Do I have to download the live cd and try booting with it?


Also found this:
Boot sometimes fails when installing to a pre-existing partition layout with complex boot configuration (e.g. software or firmware RAID-1)

link to this item - Bugzilla: #737508
The safest workaround for the issue is to resize the first disk on the partition so that there is more empty space in front of it. A very small change will be sufficient - just having the partition start at 1MiB rather than 32KiB should suffice


Not too keen on resizing partitions.

What can I do to get my computer back?

You can try to reinstall grub 2 by booting with a LIVE CD. Try the instructions given here.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your help.
Ended up doing a fresh install.
Fedora is becoming too time consuming.
