Flashing cursor on fresh install of Fedora 16

I just did a clean install of Fedora 16 on my system. All I get after the BIOS screen is a flashing cursor. I have found and red numerous posts all over the internet for similar issues, but have yet to find anything that fixes my problem. Obviously it has something to do with the MBR and Grub, but just can't seem it resolve it.

The disk did have Windows installed on it previously, some people have mentioned that this makes a difference. Also, if I install Fedora 15 it boots fine, re-install 16 and I get the same blinking cursor.
