Hi everybody,

I've just upgraded to fedora 16 from version 15 using preupgrade and the upgraded system just won't boot. My screen stays blinking on "Verifying DMI Pool Data", nothing happens and I absolutely don't know what to do next. Could you please help me in solving this issue.

Check the order your BIOS boots, it may be trying to boot a non-bootable data drive.

Go to you BIOS and do something like this: Advanced BIOS Features -> Hard Disk Boot Priority -> Bootable Add-in Cards and move your bootable drive to the top

This message is usually not related to a software problem. Did you change any hardware? Like add/remove/change a hard disk in between?

You've checked whether /boot is full?
