Re: F13-Beta Not Booting
Sorry, should have been clearer. (But, I was also being lazy, as I didn't know if you'd want to bother with what is, after all, a bit of a long shot.)
While in your working kernel, edit the file /etc/grub.conf.
You'll see a line looking something like
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-164.15.1.el5.centos.plus ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
(However, yours will look quite different--that one is cut and pasted from CentOS, yours will have a vmlinuz-2.6.30-something and be saying Fedora, rather than centos.
You'll also see in that line that yours says something like root=<very long number>. Change the <very long number> to root=/dev/sda5 or whatever your root partition might be. If not sure, you can find that out by typing the command
This will give you back several things including something like
/dev/sda5 on / type ext4 (rw)
What I like to do, especially when testing, is just put a # sign before that line, which means I'm making it into a comment, rather than command.
Then, copy the line. but leave out the # in front.
In the new line (the one without the # sign)
change the root=<longnumber> to root=/dev/sdX where X is your root partition, e.g., /dev/sda5 or /dev/sda2, or whatever your root partition is.
It's very late here, and I have to sleep, so if this was incoherent, just ask and I'll try to be clearer tomorrow.
