Hi Guys,

Just to keep it short: I upgraded a machine from FC22 to FC23 using system upgrade. At least that was the intention. Upon restart, there is no FC23 showing in the boot menu. It won't start gnome (fails in user login) but it does start in text only.

uname -r returns: 4.4.14-200.fc22.x86-64 BUT cat /etc/fedora-release returns: Fedora Release 23 (Twenty Three)

I tried to run grub2 mkconfig, it found all fc22 images and the rescue image, but no fedora 23..

I didn't get around to check that. In the end I tried another upgrade this time to Fedora 24, on the off chance it might work, and it did. I may never find out what went wrong the first time. I now have 1 Fedora 24 kernel that boots and 2 Fedora 22 kernels that don't.
