Currently, my system runs on kernel 3.2.7-1.fc16.x8664. There are several kernels after that but I cannot run them. When booting using the newer kernel such as kernel-3.3.1-3.fc16.x8664, the system enters failsafe mode and asks for root's password to login for repair. Apparently, it's stuck unable to startup software raid. cat of /proc/mdstat shows no raid at all. Normally, /proc/mdstat looks like this on my system:

# cat /proc/mdstat 
Personalities : [raid1] 
md127 : active raid1 sdb1[3]
      1953510841 blocks super 1.2 [2/1] [U_]

unused devices: <none>

this RAID-1 is incomplete at the moment because of some other issue with FC16 (there's another message on this).

Again, if I boot back into kernel 3.2.7 it works fine again.

Any idea how to troubleshoot this? I think it's software raid on FC16.
