[Discuss] Upgraded fedora 15 to 16 unable to boot

When I boot directly or from rescue I get error no such device: <disk ID #>
grub rescue >

This is a documented issue with F16, but I have yet to figure out how to
get around it.
I can boot the rescue DVD look at the root file system as well as the /boot.
All are RAID1. The /boot has both the old grub and new grub2 directories.
I don't have a Live F16 CD only USB but my desktop does not boot from USB
I've gone through the install a few tines. F16 is detected and it goes to
the bootloader section. I'll try a couple of things. I don't want to do a
clean install but I do have a full backup
