I am running Fedora 16 with all the latest patches. I am able to run preupgrade with no errors. But when I reboot and choose the grub option to "install Beefy Miracle" it gets partway through and then dies with the error message:

DeviceError: ('device has not been created', 'LABEL=Data1')

A year ago I did have a drive with that label, but later switched it to Data01. Back then I updated the file /etc/fstab and everything has worked fine since. But for some reason preupgrade seems to be expecting the old label. See the attached file for further details. Thanks in advance.
