Upgrade stalls after selecting Grub upgrade option

Hi All,

I have an older PIII dual boot machine running XP and Fedora 14 with Xfce v. 4.6.2 and was hoping to do and upgrade to F16 w/ Xfce.



I have followed the Installation help located at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PreUpg...are_the_system

Everything seems to have progressed but upon rebooting and selecting the Grub option: Upgrade to Fedora 16 (Verne) the monitor goes to black and the curser justs blinks in the upper left corner. Breaking out and rebooting in Fedora 14 works ok.



I have experienced similar blackouts when nvida drivers were not availabe when a kernal update was installed. But in this machine, I have no xorg.conf file that requires special video drivers.



Is there a way to see where the process is hanging?



TIA
