It's preupgrade from fc13, but this should probably be counted as an fc14 bug since its the upgrade kernel that fails to boot.
Comment 2 Place Holder 2010-09-07 10:24:18 EDT
I am also suffered (am suffering) this bug, trying to move from F13 to F14 using preupgrade.  Is there any damage left behind, or can someone give me the magic incantation to clean up the failed upgrade so it doesn't show up as a boot option?
Comment 3 John Ellson 2010-10-15 15:02:22 EDT
Seems to be fixed as of Fedora-14 TC1.

I successfully upgraded from Fedora 13 with an encrypted filesystem.
