Upgrade to FC9 => Multiple Devices are labeled with same UUID

Hi !

I have one problem when trying to upgrade from FC5 -> FC9.
I get "Multiple Devices are labeled 10D8-132E - fix it before you continue".

As you can see below I have unique LABELs on each partition but 3 of them have the same UUID="10D8-132E.

1. Why is not Fedora/Anaconda seeing the unique LABELs ?

2. Do I need to rename UUID for 2 of the partitions ? and in that case how ?

3. Can it be solved by reformatting the partitions to ext3 ?

/dev/hda2: LABEL="HDA2C" UUID="3D61-13E4" TYPE="vfat"
/dev/hda5: LABEL="HDA5D" UUID="4481-8F60" TYPE="vfat"
/dev/hdb5: LABEL="hdb5" UUID="bc577def-42a5-4c44-9417-33c94d74946f" TYPE="ext3"
/dev/hdb6: LABEL="HDB6" UUID="10D8-132E" TYPE="vfat"
/dev/hdb7: LABEL="HDB7" UUID="10D8-132E" TYPE="vfat"
/dev/hdb8: LABEL="HDB8" UUID="10D8-132E" TYPE="vfat"
/dev/hdb9: LABEL="boot" UUID="691e088b-33c0-4d63-9f16-6c8aaf2c909f" SEC_TYPE="ext2" TYPE="ext3"
/dev/hdb10: LABEL="hdb10" UUID="89504d45-bba8-4665-bab2-f809630b5d23" SEC_TYPE="ext2" TYPE="ext3"
/dev/hdb11: TYPE="swap" LABEL="SWAP-hdb11" UUID="bec4d83a-4ea7-4ae1-9e8b-24a4dd363e57"

Upgrading through four versions is just asking for trouble. Upgrading to the next version can be problematic enough, that's why it's not recommended by the developers. It'll take you a couple of hours to get all your stuff freshly installed rather than days trying to fix the ugly mess. There were changes to the way the kernel handled hard drive partitions in F7 and there are a lot of changes and new stuff in F9. Save yourself a nightmare and do a fresh install.
