Description Joan Aymà 2013-08-02 07:29:24 EDT
Description of problem:

Did a fresh install with a custom partition schema, /boot on a primary partition, and /, /opt, /var on a lvm vg. All on same disk. After reboot, grub came on rescue console, complaining about not finding '/grub2/i386-pc/normal.mod'. And indeed the file was not there.

I did

  grub2-install --recheck /dev/sda

after rebooting again to live usb, which solved the problem.

There's an entry on anaconda.log that installs bootloader on /dev/sda, then /dev/sdb. During install /dev/sda was Fedora's live usb stick, and at next reboot, /dev/sda was Fedora's recent install.

If needed I could reproduce the problem on another machine
