Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 133337
Upgrade installation does not install grub, leaves system unbootable
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:49 EST
Upgrading FC2 -> FC3t3 using CDs. All defaults chosen through install wizard. Entire
install completes, and then after reboot the FC2 grub screen appears - apparently the FC3
upgrade did not overwrite the old grub boot sector. When pressing enter on the choice
listed it produces "file not found" (not shocking since it is referring to the FC2 kernel).
I tried going into rescue mode and modifying grub.conf to point to the correct file, but this
resulted in a boot that just printed "GRUB" and then locked. I then tried rerunning grub-
install but the result was almost the same: rebooting produced "GRUB" being printed
infinitely across the screen.
Can you boot into rescue mode and grab the /root/upgrade.log and see
if there are any errors/warnings in there?
I already did a fresh reinstall which wiped the / partition. I may
try upgrading another system soon, if it happens there I will be sure
to grab the log. Sorry about that...
