according to Fedora 16 Beta release creterias
article
9. The installer must be able to successfully complete an upgrade installation from a clean, fully updated default installation (from any official install medium) of the previous stable Fedora release, either via preupgrade or by booting to the installer manually. The upgraded system must meet all release criteria 

This should be a Beta Blocker

See step 3 just above. You told the installer to not modify your bootloader configuration, yet you have upgraded the operating system. This requires you to manually update your own bootloader configuration.
Comment 4 Adam Williamson 2011-10-18 12:29:40 EDT
Yes. This is how 'skip bootloader' is meant to work. Note the text of the test case reads:

Expected Results

1. The system should be upgraded to Fedora 16 version without error
2. The previous bootloader configuration should be left completely untouched, even if it is now invalid (unbootable)
3. After any necessary manual bootloader re-configuration to render the system bootable again, it should boot and work without problems 

Note, especially, point #2. Your result is a pass, not a fail.
