Installed boot loader does not offer recovery options

Boot screen after pressing "e"
I assume that the F18 installer installs grub2. If this is incorrect, please reassign.
The boot menu does not offer any recovery options. Pressing "e" as instructed just blanks out the rectangle in the middle of the screen, so this option isn't very helpful either.
What have you installed?
I installed Fedora-18-Alpha-x86_64-Live-Desktop.iso in a VM. I will attempt another install and see if the results are different.
That problem should have been fixed.
Please update the system and run grub2-install and grub2-mkconfig and verify that it solves the problem.

grub2-install and grub2-mkconfig do not change when they aren't invoked with certain arguments. I ran "grub2-install /dev/vda", but I don't know the correct way to invoke grub2-mkconfig.
Shouldn't this happen automatically during package update?

Not the way it is designed. (But the new EFI support will make it more confusing.)
Okay, this fixed it, thanks. The window is still narrow, but seems to work.
(Please include exact version information when reporting issues. And if possible try to verify if problems have been fixed before reporting.)
