If your old system is so important that you must upgrade rather then re-install
why not use the safest method rather than a new whizbang idea that comes from the multiple yum upgrades sometimes needed for certain conditions, and preupgrade is the workaround for those that haven't a clue when to do the multiple steps and are to cocky to do a dvd upgrade even when they don't know what they are doing.
If the boot partition is too small, and it only gets bigger with f14 (500MB) and a boot partition can not be increased, usually, and this is Fedora (a testing and development Linux)
why not re-install and adjust your F13 to the future and get on with it.
