Description of problem:
Booting FC9 stops at the grub prompt: grub>.  If I enter 'boot' at the grub
prompt, I get the message: 'Error 8: Kernel must be loaded before booting'.  

I had downloaded FC9 using bittorrent (i386), installed it on an Intel Xeon
platform.  On the system reboot right after installation, I get the problem.

The information we've requested above is required in order to review this problem report further and diagnose or fix the issue if it is still present.  Since it has been thirty days or more since we first requested additional information, we're assuming the problem is either no longer present in the current Fedora release, or that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.

Setting status to "CLOSED: INSUFFICIENT_DATA".  If you still experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora release and can provide the information previously requested, please feel free to reopen the bug report.

Thank you in advance.
