I just installed Fedora 20.01 but now it says to update the intr... something when it's booting and is going into a shell. How do i update the kernel?. I think I may have upset it while retreiving data from a failed hdd. It was fine before and I can boot ok with a spare drive that has fedora 14 on it. It does eventually boot. New to Fedora 20.01 and been using Ubuntu too long

Welcome to ask.fedora! There is no such thing as "Fedora 20.01" because Fedora doesn't do fractional releases like Ubuntu does. In order to help you, we'll need more information, such as the exact error message, which you can add to your question, or as a comment below mine. (Don't put it in an answer, as you only get one.) About all I can tell you now is that yum isn't likely to be what you need to fix this issue, but if you can boot, you can update the kernel with this, done as root: yum update kernel

Thank you, before I saw your answer, I typed in yum update and it was pretty awesome :)

Sorted, watched a youtube video and have done an update and seems to have fixed everything possible

(I'd like to add that Fedora was the only one of quite a lot of linux distro's that would allow me to access and retreive my stuff from a failed hdd.)

This may have worked, but it won't always work. This probably worked because grub is regenerated during a kernel update. The actual answer would be this:

Anyway, closing.
