Hi,
I got your response by e-mail.
It took half an hour for me to see my post in the gmane reader (on the fedora
list it was seen immediatelly). Oh well, sleepy Sunday at gmane today :-)

Make one more change to to /etc/grub.conf again, so you can manage it easily
between the Preupgrade and your kernels (increase timeout to 20):

default=0
timeout=20
# hiddenmenu

Now back to the problem.

Give me outpt of:
# ls -al /boot/upgrade/
# ls -al /var/cache/yum/
# findfs UUID=f8a71551-f7b7-45ef-b1d8-057f4cf69482
# cat /boot/upgrade/ks.cfg

Make a backup of
# cp /etc/grub.conf /etc/grub.conf-backup

and then reduce number of Linux kernel boot items in the original to the first
two (2):
...
title Upgrade to Fedora 14 (Laughlin)

I see you appended to your working regular kernel lines
rdblacklist=nouveau
How about appending it to your Preupgrade kernel line:
...
rdblacklist=nouveau
initrd /boot/upgrade/initrd.img
...

Give it a shot and reboot to start Preupgrade.

In the meantime I will take a look at your response data.

JB
