Ok, it was the new GPT labeling for the disk that Fedora 16 uses by default. Here is the info to work around it:

"If you are affected by this problem, you can work around it by passing the parameter nogpt to the Fedora installer. To do this, at the initial bootloader menu for the Fedora installation, where you can select to install, install in basic graphics mode, boot to the rescue mode and so on, hit the Tab key, then edit the command line for the Fedora installer and add the word nogpt. "

And the url of the page I found the info:

Look about 1/3 of the way down for the heading "Some systems, particularly Apple Macs, cannot boot GPT-labelled disks ".
