Hi, I've moved the thread, because it's Fedora 11. So, it goes in the alpha/beta section.
Is this a SCSI or RAID setup? There is a known bug, but I thought it was fixed--in F10, at least it was fixed with the first upgrade.
Try this, though I'm not sure it will work.
As soon as the machine gets past the bios screen, start tapping the space bar or actually, I think any key will will work. The idea is to get to the grub menu.
So, hopefully you're quick enough and you'l see your menu there. When it's highlighted hit e as in edit. Then, you see the three lines of the grub entry. Select the middle line, the one that ends with rhgb quiet. Hit e again.
Now, add this after the rhgb quiet.
See if it boots then. If it does, just add it to kernel line for now, that is, as root, open /etc/grub.conf, find that line and add the scsi_mod.scan stuff.
Then, you can test if it's fixed in an upgrade. By the way, if upgrading F11, before doing anything else, first do
yum upgrade rpm
Otherwise, any updates will fail.
Please report back if this fixes it for you, if it does, mention that it still exists should be added to one of the numerous bug reports about it that were basically ignored. :)

Actually, first try my suggestion. :) If that does fix it, it means that they are still releasing ISOs with this issue, which shouldn't be happening.
If it does turn out to be the problem, he can search bugzilla till he's blue in the face, only to find several reports of it, the fact that it's not considered a showstopper, and see lots of additional reports closed as duplicates, till he finds the one that gives the solution I gave above.
IF my suggestion doesn't fix it, well, then it's a whole different thing and follow Demz's advice--I haven't seen mention of it on the testing list, but I haven't been following the list too closely for the last week or so, being rather busy.
