Unhappy preupgrade F10->F11 ERROR

Hello,

I had a F10 distribution and I've used the preupdate to update to F11, the problem is that after I select the : "Update to Fedora 11(Leonidias)" I get the msg : Erorr 15 : File not found.

Code:
title Upgrade to Fedora 11 (Leonidas)
        kernel /upgrade/vmlinuz preupgrade repo=hd::/var/cache/yum/preupgrade stage2=hd:UUID=861a8e6e-a450-4f55-96d3-46
4a0bbe80cb:/upgrade/install.img ks=hd:UUID=861a8e6e-a450-4f55-96d3-464a0bbe80cb:
/upgrade/ks.cfg
        initrd /upgrade/initrd.img
I modified the repo=hd::/var/cache....
kernel /upgrade/vmlinuz preupgrade repo=hd:UUID=861a8e6e-a450-4f55-96d3-
464a0bbe80cb:/var/cache/yum/preupgrade

but nothing.

Can some one give me some advice?

I'm not sure if it's the best idea to preupgrade to F11. I suggest a clean install of F12. Or if you wanna test things preupgrade from F10 to F12.

If you want to play it safe, backup data and install F12.

I would really like to keep F11 and not clean reinstall.

My suggestion is to wait till you receive a new bunch of updates regarding preugrade/gnome-packagekit/...

Meanwhile backup your data. There's no guarantee once the preupgrade thingie might seem to work it will end up successfully upon reboot. If the worst happens, even if the fix might be trivial and easily fixable, you might not be able to fix it for many reasons.
