Hi!

i had installed FC6 on my pc which already had win xp. not due tu some issues i had to e-install winxp, doing this my MBR was renewed and thus i lost the FC6 grub screen, so when i booted with the fc6 dvd again to upgrade the fc6 installation i just chose to modify boot and checked the option install GRUB on MBR on /dev/hda , and then install started and finished in a fraction of seconds but finally gave this error msg,::

No Kernel Packages were installed. The boot sector wont be updated.

GOD knows why? can ne1 pls help me out 2 sort this

P.S. previously i had upgraded FC6 once for only the GRUB thingy and everythin was fine.but sorrowfully not this time

Yeah, that usually works for me too.
Do it the old fashioned way just put the FC disk in then type linux rescue at the boot prompt and follow along until you get a command line then type

chroot /mnt/sysimage
grub-install /dev/hda

then type exit twice to reboot take the disk out and see what happens.
