I don't know if it can help you, but I had this problem too, but I
installed 3 workstations after this workaround.
Not sure if anyone is aware of this mess of a bug:
Basically grub pukes all over itself when trying to interact with XFS
filesystems, resulting in an unbootable, or barely bootable FC4
Any gurus here know of a solution?
Yes, i know, this is really a FC/grub issue, but since its specific to
XFS, i thought someone might have run into it and found a workaround
- When the grub slpash screen appears, move the line to the selected
kernel and edit the last options: replace "root=label=/" by
"root=/dev/hda1" (put the good slice corresponding to your / partition)
- Try booting like this
- If all is OK, I suggest you to modify /etc/grub.conf, and change this
line to make it safe permanently.
And, for me, I hate the entries in /etc/fstab using label instead of the
physical slice. So I replace them also.
