Description of problem:
My experience, and talking with others, one of the hardest rescue
operations is repairing a non-booting system.
After a recent non-booting situation, I had to resolve by re-upgrading
FC-1 on top of a just upgraded FC-1 (a procedure which eventually
worked, but had other problems).
The rescue mode offers a command prompt, and access to GRUB commands,
but no rescue operation; just poking and proding with GRUB commands
(which never solved the problem for me).
Better would be a bootloader repair tool (and ideally a suite of tools
to fix common problems) offered in rescue mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Go into rescure mode, try to learn about GRUB from scratch, and repair
a broken boot.
Actual Results: In my case it failed.
Expected Results: Would hope to run a repair tool, which which after
a few Q & A, would fix my unbootable system.
Changing the component, as this has nothing to do with fedora-release...
