14 looking for boot in wrong place

I'm a total newbie here, so please forgive me if I misspeak...

I'm attempting to run Amahi off of Fedora 14. I had it all installed, but I was getting some strange issues that appeared to be stemming from an issue during intall. I decided to do a fresh install, and this is where I'm running into problems.

I have one HD being used as the system drive (recognized as sdc), and 2 1TB HDs in a hardware RAID1 being mounted as storage. With the partition tool, I made sure that the LVM with lv_swap, lv_root, and lv_home were on the system drive, and I wrote an ext4 partition on the storage RAID, mounted to /var/hda/files (the shares directory for Amahi).

All appeared to be well-and-good until the initial reboot after the install. The Fedora loadign screen came up for a few seconds, and then dumped me out. It said that /dev/sda was already in use and it could not boot from it. I don't know why it's looking for "sda", while the boot drive is "sdc" and there is no "sda".

Is there something I can run from the command prompt that it dumped me to to fix this?

I'm confused... I read the EOL description, and does this mean that I shouldn't expect any help with this?

No, it simply means that your post was moved to a sub-Forum where members who run F14 and older versions are more likely to view it and, since F14 is quite different from F15 and F16, you'll probably get better results.
