preupgrade from F15 to F16 : "Error 15 : File not found"

Hello, need some help please on this issue if possible.

Performed preupgrade from f15 to f16 on a toshiba satellite pro laptop.
All seemed to go fine and the system rebooted.
Looks like the new shell is running as it gave me a new looking login prompt and screen background.
However then I checked the kernel and saw that the f15 kernel version was actually running.
I then rebooted and saw that "Upgrade to fedare16 (verne) was an option on the boot list along with the older linux kernels and windows xp.
But it has defaulted to the latest f15 kernel I had.
I then tried the f16 verne and immediately got:

Error 15 : File not found
Press any key to continue

and it gives back the grub menu list with the options again.


Here is the grub menu list:
Code:
cat /boot/grub/menu.lst

I have read a number of issues related to this but I;m nowhere near solving.
The error makes sense in that I guess its looking for
kernel /upgrade/vmlinuz preupgrade repo=hd::/var/cache/yum/preupgrade ks=hd:UUID=117ae55c-20d6-4fe7-af15-5c96853839b6:/upgrade/ks.cfg
initrd /upgrade/initrd.img

but I could not find them on my system after the preupgrade.

Would really appreciate some guidance.
thanks.

Re: preupgrade from F15 to F16 : "Error 15 : File not found"

got some good help on this on linuxquestions

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...58#post4541558

essentially all I had to do was

Code:
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
grub2-install /dev/sda
all seems to be ok at the moment.

Re: preupgrade from F15 to F16 : "Error 15 : File not found"

Hi, my notebook was happly running F14 or F15 (can't remember!!) and I did the preupgrade to F16.
All went well, though it took several times to made the complete load of the files. When it finaly finished, it asked to reboot, so I did ... and ... disgrace!
I had previously deleted all except the running versions of kernels from the disk to make space (although the partition was not even 40% full out of 100GB partition).
When it rebooted it gave me two options: the Fedora 16 upgrade and Windows XP.
When I try the F16 upgrade it just says "files not found" but my real problem is that I can't boot to the old kernel!
Can anyone help me?
