F23 boot code in Grub2
This is normal. It isn't the default boot entry so you have to select it and hit enter.
Grub2 bootmenue, see above. Select Windows, wait for 2 secs, decided not to boot Windows, but Fedora Workstation, select, within theese 2 secs F23 Workstation. No boot, without hitting enter. In German "das könnte ein Streit um des Kaisers Bart sein", but anyway I would like to have this clarified.
Nota bene: "Streit um des Kaisers Bart" means dispute about nothing.
