Hi there I'm trying to upgrade fedora from 16 to fedora 17 using preupgrade. I've used preupgrade before to go from fedora 14 > 16 with no problems. I'm an experienced user of all types of distros. but this is starting to piss me off a little. :dis:

I have been happily using, for several months, Fedora 12 on a PC with a crashed Windows XP3 as the other operating system, and have just used preupgrade to download Fedora 16, which now appears as the second entry in my /boot/grub/menu.lst file.
Booting with this as the default entry just hangs up the machine. So, my question is: what do I do now to complete the upgrade?
