How do you repair/reinstall Fedora without deleting any existing partitions or data?
I was attempting to upgrade some old Fedora 13 servers to 17, following the instructions in the wiki. After the 14->15 upgrade, rebooting resulted in the output:
Dropping to debug shell. sh: can't access tty; job control turned off dracut:/#
Running dmesg also shows:
dracut Warning: No root device "block:/dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_root" found
Googling shows this error is typically related to some weird RAID issues, but my server is a virtual machine not using any RAID. Using a rescue CD, I can
chroot /mnt/sysimage, and all packages and data still seems to be there. How do I make the system bootable again?
