What a nightmare.
First anaconda hanged on a supposedly old moodle package that could not be updated. I managed to wipe the old package and let it skipt it after a few tries. This enabled anaconda to finish. First reboot I get kernel panic with missing kernel.
With the rescue boot I looked at the generated grub and the initrd line is missing. I looked in boot and the initrams file itself is missing!
The old FC16s no longer boot. Any advice?
Edited to add: I tried rescue, chroot /mnt/sysimage, then grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg but the generated grub file does not have the relevant initrd call.
