How do I update Macbok Pro 8,1 from F19 to F20 using fedup?

So, I'm currently running F19 and I ran the fedup preparation successfully, following the FedUp page on the wiki. All looked like it went well, no issues in the log that I could find. However, upon rebooting, the "System Upgrade" option was not in the grub menu. It's currently setup as a partition boot via rEFIt. I've not been able to boot my Macbook Pro 8,1 (late 2011) via EFI.

Any guidance on what I should try?

Which version of fedup are you using? fedup 0.7 is known to have problems. Try installing fedup 0.8 by enabling update-testing repo.

su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing install fedup'

And fedup again.

Yeah, I'd already seen that. I think was really only an issue when F20 was released. If you did an update to the latest F19 packages (which I did), it alright. Current package version on my system is fedup-0.8.0-3.fc19.noarch

It was due to my /boot partition mount being commented out of fstab. Not sure what did this, I know, I didn't.
