Correct the description:
there is only grub.cfg under /etc, there is no grub2.cfg. 
and all anaconda logs in /var/log/ are not touched.
after installation , the preupgrade directory under root / is empty.
Comment 5 Mads Kiilerich 2011-10-31 09:40:01 EDT
This indicates that 
1: the old f15 kernels has been removed
2: grub2 wasn't installed
3: anaconda didn't finish correctly

One way to investigate it further could be to look for anaconda log files in /tmp while upgrading.
Comment 6 Adam Williamson 2011-10-31 12:00:28 EDT
hong: preupgrade is a two-step process: once you install preupgrade into F15, then run it and let it download all the upgrade packages, you're supposed to reboot and it boots into anaconda to complete the upgrade. That's what the 'Upgrade to Verne' bootloader entry is for.

When you say "after modify grub.cfg to boot from 'Upgrade to Fedora 16 Branched
Pre-release(Verne)', it still cannot not boot.", what do you mean exactly?

yeah, it is not a bug. It was F16 when I come this morning.
