I have a ASUS Eee PC 1000HE. It dual boots Fedora and Win7, and I keep my /home in it's own partition. I have been running Fedora on it since Fedora 11, and each time I clean install while retaining my .home directory without issue.
With Fedora 16, at the end of the installation when it attempts to install the boot loader, it fails with the error 'The bootloader failed to install. Your system may not boot" And it doesn't boot. I'm sure this is related to the change to grub2.
I tried just too see if it would make any difference using a Win7 disc to install Microsoft's boot loader and then have Fedora 16 try to install the bootloader again, I received the same message.
Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot or fix this?
