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.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I have re-installed twice, and dowloaded FC9 twice. Each time I reboot, I get
the same grub error 'Error 8: Kernel must be loaded before booting'.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot server at any time. Fails to load the OS everytime.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
